Thanks Wilmark. I left my comment, but I doubt it will do much good.

we ascertained that wilmark downloaded an infected crack/keygen from mediafire, the same infected zip compressed file is probably spreading through other P2P sharing hosts.
And now?

I assume wilmark won't reply as usual, however what about removing the live download link?

[edit to add] Thank you Sami

The Virus Total report is unfortunately a month old for most of those definitions. If anyone gets this Trojan, please submit the file to Virus Total. You should also send the file to your company's Anti-Virus lab with an explanation. (Details should be in your AV program.) Or visit your AV companies' website on how to submit files to them in an e-mail for testing. Create a Zip Folder for the attachment, Right-Click and choose Compressed Zip Folder. Drag the file to the Zip folder. (Don't Double Click it!!!!) In the body of the e-mail indicate the name of the suspected Trojan and ask the Anti-Virus lab to test. Attach the file to your E-Mail. Put Test Suspected Virus in the subject of your E-Mail Message and submit it.

@ satchman
thank you, here is a more recent detailed VT report (I unzipped the sample)

Some useful links

Submit to Avira
Submit to EMSISOFT
Dr Web

as far as I know, Avast users can only send malware already detected through Avast Chest.

Usually Kaspersky and Microsoft are very fast in analyzing and replying according to my experience

Good catch. And good supporting teamwork.


Actually. I am a huge fan of Rockstar games. I see many Mac users are hugely disappointed with the recent port of the GTA Liberty Stories series. A lot of people will be scrabbling for Mods and unofficial patches.

Here is the Contact Us Page for Avast:

Please feel free to use my comments above siblingshot's post for help as well.


PS. The direct e-mail link for sending files within the support page seems to be down today. But the e-mail for doing this is still the same. You can still contract them through your e-mail program at that address with the file that is suspicious. Just follow my above posts' recommendations.

For sending suspicious files to Avast, it is Tips:

1.) Submit files in Zip file format with an explanation of the suspected virus in message body.
2.) Attach suspected file to e-mail.
3.) If Password protected, indicate the password in the body of the e-mail message.
4.) Subject should say, "Please Test Potential Virus Or Malware"
5.) If you want Avast to investigate a website, use "hxxp", replacing the "tt" with "xx" for better security.

I am going to investigate Avast's site to find out more about sending files to them.

free file sharing sites get abused.

How do we know the OP didn't submit the file?
or found it referenced on some "malware research site" and referenced the link here.

rather than downrating the abused host, you should inform them of the ToS violation and report the link to them...

Maybe he can help or so
