Sims / Sophos this morning - A Warning
I'm not sure if its a false positive or whether something has infected the sims directory this morning but we've had the setups directory completely annilihated by Sophos on access scanning.
W32/Parite-B Win32 executable file virus (W32.Pinfi, W32/Pate-B, PE_PARITE.A, W32/Pate.b, W95/Parite.B, Win32.Parite.b) - Sophos security analysis
All over the place.
It couldn't clean the files and I've got it set to delete uncleanable files (as they're generally purely virus exes - obviously not in this case)
Am restoring from tape now but wanted to make anyone else aware.
I'm sure its a false positive which makes it even scarier. Stupid Sophos.
I've changed my policies now to "do nothing" if unable to clean the files ;)
