Windows 7: Malware hosted on Google Code project site

To tell you the truth, I don't know what raised the flags on that, considering that the schools security can be a bit "lax" at times.

Take for example today, I walked past the server room and once again saw it wide open, no one inside keeping an eye on things.

Add to the fact they have had a virus for 1 year now they haven't gotten rid of (they are using McAfee, so there's the probable cause)
