    McAfee it's time to WAKE UP

      Please help me to understand the situation. I've been infected by virus http://www.virustotal.com/file-scan/report.html?id=cd4e9e74ab65587d86d8b433ebefe db29457f56622f4ad3a8daff73c60c2e937-1301746254 As you can see this virus detected McAfee by signature W32/Expiro.gen.g  which was created almost a week ago (http://home.mcafee.com/VirusInfo/VirusProfile.aspx?key=430060).

      But for today, this virus for unclear reasons DON,T detect by signature ! his detect only as Artemis or by EXTRA.DAT (from McAfee Lab). Respectively, McAfee products is deletes all infected files, instead of repair them !! So, what's the problem with McAfee ????

          W32/Expiro.gen.g is a file infecting virus &  Infection starts with manual execution of the binary.  SO every time you access the infected file the chance of the file transmitting the infection to other files in the system are high. Please let us know what was the location the infected files were present to provide more information (c drive / D drive)

            it is no longer relevant, at Easter McAfee made a gift and released real signature Expiro. infected files was located on the both drives
