You claim in this thread that the ET Pro download page is infected with the tftp.exe/msblast/saveblast worms.

It is not true.

msblast/saveblast are RPC worms, which are not transmitted via HTTP/HTML.

Further, msblast/saveblast are microsoft-windows specific worms, and the ET Pro site runs Linux. It is impossible for Linux to get infected by msblast/saveblast.

It seems, this misinformation is being repeated without any critical thinking. Example here.

The only possible conclusions are:

1) Your PC is already infected with msblast/saveblast because you neglected to install the windows rpc patch.
2) Your virus scanner software is broken. Delete it and get a better one.

Please stop spreading this misinformation about ET Pro. It is simply not true.

I've seen quite a few posts on sites and forums wrongly stating that various sites have certain trojan infections lately (example), more of often than not it seems to be PC-Cillin wrongly detecting trojans signatures in some code in either the page scripting or an advertisement.
