Anyone getting an alert for Win32:Induc? Avast has just thrown it up in 'Youtube Downloader HD' which has been on my system for a couple of weeks.

Seems like it looks for Delphi installs and infects them.

I am wondering whether mine is a false positive or not. Probably is....

Seems its a REAL bug - AS on Sophos (http://www.sophos.com/security/analyses/viruses-and-spyware/w32induca.html) - Virus List (http://www.viruslist.com/en/weblog?weblogid=208187826) - Avast Blog site (http://blog.avast.com/2009/08/19/win32induc-new-concept-of-file-infector/) - Nod32 Virus list (http://www.eset.eu/press/new-virus-win32-induc-a-delphi).

Better do some housework on your PC- :thumbs:

That was on the other PC the other day in system restore. How it got there, I have no idea. I think it was a false + from an update

Oh, well, uninstalled the prog and ran a scan. Now gone. Not entirely sure it wasn't a false pos, however.

And that YT HD prog really did make very nice vids!

You don't even need a program to download YouTube videos: http://googlesystem.blogspot.com/2008/04/download-youtube-videos-as-mp4-files.html :)
