virus warning Norton 2003

  steve0 00:15 29 Feb 2004

Was visiting some websites when Norton flashed up warning Bloodhound.Exploit.6 virus found - cannot repair. Seems like this was protected in latest virus definitions 27/2/03 but no further info on it. Has anyone else got this warnoing, or the virus itself?

Bloodhound is not the name of a virus, but a message displayed by Symantec's Norton Anti-Virus when it thinks it may have found a new virus.

You may like to re-scan your system with Sophos Anti-Virus - if it is a virus that Sophos knows about it will tell you its correct name. If Sophos does not find a virus please send a sample to [email protected] so our experts can analyse the file. Our virus analysts will be able to ascertain quickly whether it is truly a new virus or a Norton Anti-Virus false alarm.

This seems to be a generic detection/reporting used by Norton - it is not the name of the (suspected) virus click here
