Resist the narcotic undertow of the tellyvision!!!

It's just a clever trojan, ppl, srsly. If you were a trojan and wanted access thru a user-click-pass soft-firewall, what's the first site you'd ping? LOLCATZ!

"but it's an official norton file!!!" haha in my mouth. Delphi is beautiful script kiddie script to modify rt-click properties.

So srsly, calm down.

Delete it. The OP stuck his nose someplace shady and got a new trojan. They still make those? wool yea! Symantec didn't respond because they didn't know about it. No one sent it to them. and yes, you do have to send them viruses/trojans so that they can fight them. send it to me, weee!

Finally, it has also been reported by the Washington Post that hackers are taking advantage of this situation. "Some of the top searches (currently the 3rd and 4th result in a Google search) are Web sites that try to install malicious software when you visit them." When searching for information on "pifts.exe," Symantec strongly advises all users to be wary of following links to unknown sites as malicious users are attempting to use this hot topic to distribute malware.
