Windows 7: 7100 RC Warning

28 Apr 2009   #11

Windows 7 x64 7229

I downloaded one of the infected ones. I can give information about it.

It was the Windows b. 7100 64-bit version, and the setup.exe was infected.

Here's information about the torrent:
Name: Windows 7 Ultimate x64 RC Build 7100.torrent
Size: 16,246 bytes
Size of .iso: 3.06 GB
Size of infected setup.exe: 14.xx kb (Not exactly sure about this)
It didn't have a icon on the setup at all, and if you check information about the real one, it will have Microsoft written on it somewhere.

Hi Copyright,

Thanks for the feedback,
as far as I can discover the infections, where present, are fairly simple low level ones and as long as you are running a reasonable AV solution it should find it.

The example from the link I provided shows it being caught by Avast but of course the more information that's available, to members here, the better.
