FYI...AVG false positive on XP System32\wintrust.dll
14 March 2013 - "On Thursday morning, the protection programs of AVG incorrectly identified the Windows system file wintrust.dll as a trojan
of type "Generic32.FJU". Under certain circumstances, the virus hunting software has also labelled programs as malware if they attempted to access the supposed trojan DLL. The solution is a virus signature update. Only Windows XP systems were affected by the problem
. Users who deleted the file from their system could not boot their computers any more. In this case, to help restore the system, boot it with the Rescue CD and take wintrust.dll from a still functioning system and copy that to C:\Windows\System32\. At least, according to AVG, the anti-virus software did not automatically delete or quarantine the wintrust.dll file, though other files will have to be moved back into place. The company says it fixed the problem by 12:45 on the same day with updates to virus database number 567 for AVG 9 and 2012 editions and virus database number 6174 for the current 2013 edition."
___Kaspersky fixes IPv6 problem
14 March 2013 - "Security researcher Marc Heuse discovered that the firewall in Kaspersky Internet Security 2013 has a problem with certain IPv6 packets. The researcher said that he publicly disclosed the details of the problem because Kaspersky didn't respond when he reported it. Shortly after his disclosure, Kaspersky did release a fix
. A single packet is all that's required to completely cripple a Windows PC. When running tests with his IPv6 tool suite, Heuse discovered that KIS responds inappropriately to fragmented IPv6 packets that contain an overly long extension header. IPv6 support has been enabled by default since Windows Vista, therefore users would be vulnerable even without one of the still sparsely used IPv6 internet connections – for example on public Wi-Fi networks. Kaspersky has now confirmed the problem for Kaspersky Internet Security 2013, Kaspersky Pure 3.0 and Kaspersky Endpoint Security 10 for Windows. "A non-public patch [for Kaspersky Internet Security 2013] is already available from our support department on request, and an autopatch that will fix the problem automatically will be released in the near future"..."
