A friend of my has had a Trojan called TROJ_BISKOO.A which he cleared from his machine with PC Cillin from Trend.
I havesearched Symantec & McAfee virus indexes and cannot find it!
Trend has the following entry, but no further info. TROJ_BISKOO.A This Trojan is a C++ compiled, web downloader that will download any file from the specified website and execute it in the local machine. This malware runs on Windows 95, 98, NT, 2000, ...
Jester2K II: As The German Soldier at the end of 'Laugh in' used to say....Verrry Interesting..... seeing that Trend were the only people to recognise this trojan, I used their 'on line' free scanner (just in case). It scanned my machine and reported 45000(approx) files scanned - no virus problems. I then ran my usual AVG, and this reported 25000(approx) files scanned - no virus problems.
This raises the problem - who's lying!!! does Trend scan every file and AVG only files which can be infected? Or is Trend boosting their figures just to prove how good they are? As I said...Verrrry interesting!
