Trojan Zapchast


Recommended Posts


I ran a scan earlier today and received a positive for Trojan.Zapchast. My initial scan was with database 1590. I updated twice to db 1592 and the program was still identifying the infection. The update identified an additional positive for the same trojan in System Volume Information.

I'm not sure if this is a false positive or an actual infection. I searched Google and checked ProcessLibrary.com for

srvany.exe. Seems to be a legit windows system process. I'm posting my scan results for review. Thanks very much

for any assistance.

Let me know of this is fixed .

Thanks for reply. I did update the program to data base 1596 this morning and ran a scan. The scan didn't pick up the two files, and showed no infected files. I was thinking the srvany.exe listing in Windows Resource Kits was a false positive. Didn't know what to make of the System Volume Information file.

You feel both files were nothing to be concerned about? Thanks again for your help.
