Which virus is this?

Postby Old Marcus on Sun Mar 22, 2009 5:21 pm

I just did a recursive scan on my home folder with ClamTk, and it found something in the Firefox Cache marked as 'PUA.Script.Packed-2'. More than anything, I'm curious as to what this is. Is it a false positive or a genuine thing?

'apt install' can be used on Linux Mint as a shortcut for 'sudo apt-get install'. 'apt x' can be used for various other apt commands as well.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Old Marcus,

Below is an url that might help you. Bottom line is, it might be real or it might not. It is a Windows virus, if it is real.

I'm not really worried about it, I was just curious.
