A warning in the news from Microsoft. I found this in my registry in folder 5603. Needless to say, I deleted it from my registry.

McAfee AVERT Stinger

Stinger is a stand-alone utility used to detect and remove specific viruses. It is not a substitute for full anti-virus protection, but rather a tool to assist administrators and users when dealing with an infected system. Stinger utilizes next generation scan engine technology, including process scanning, digitally signed DAT files, and scan performance optimizations.

FYI--I ended up with an ".expidite." seies Trojan, which was instantly caught and deat with via my background AV monitor. The Trojan accesssed, unfortunately, in conjunction with a BOINC download which ws in progress at the time. My System is firewalled and VPed senseless, and is insulated from the net (cable) via a NetGear Router. In other words, I am full stealth on the Web. Given the fact that all mail is scanned both by my ISP and my System--the only way this could have gotten in is through BOINC. Keep your eyes open.

I expect you have something more solid to back this claim...or?
