I feel the community should know I ran into this...

iolo System Shield reports infected object:

C:\PROGRAMDATA\BOINC\PROJECTS\SETIATHOME.BREKLEY.EDU\CUFFT32_42_9.DLL

infection name:

"w32/heuristic-mu2 Eldorado"


not to say it came from this site, but I don't know where it came from.

this machine has only been to:

msn.com
news.google.com
seti@home.com

it only runs Win7, Adobe reader and SETI@home

any comments?

thanks Red

This is a false positive - take a look at this thread:
