C:\games\ncsoft\NCAccess.exe (Trojan.Agent) -> No action taken. [0a2761212636ba7cbd1f8c0b6b9551af]

The reason this file is sitting around labeled "NCAccess.exe" is that ncsoft's developers are incompetent fools, and have a program which UAC-prompts for admin privileges which it does not actually need. So I wrote a small program, compiled it, and copied it in. Here is the complete source:

int main(void) { return 0; }

This works fine, and I know at least one other person who's done basically the same thing without difficulty. It wasn't detected prior to today, although I think I've only had it in place for about two weeks on this machine.
