7100 RC Warning

Just as a precaution it may be best to check your install

Leaked Windows 7 RC torrents infected with trojan

Various torrents of the Windows 7 RC have been infected with a trojan that, if allowed to run successfully, could open a security hole in a userís system. The affected torrents have the setup.exe install file encapsulated in a self-extracting archive, along with an installer for the trojan itself; launching it triggers an install of both Windows 7 RC and the malware.

It appears mine checks out, but I'm still going to be downloading the official RC when it comes out.
