stinger and get susp

downloaded both.

stinger did not show any viruses on very high scan.

getsusp later did.

why the conflict?

 

2.   the report  file was too large to upload.

I tried to open the file.

it said I needed a password.  where do I get it?

I wanted to manually copy and paste the file into a word docusment and manuall extract the suspicious or unknown files to send rather than the whole zip file which McAafee said was too big.

 

3.  what will happen if or when I manage to send this file if it falls under getsusp's upload limit?

 

4.  what response might mcafee give me?

 

5.  is there a workaround for this?

    I will point a getsusp expert here but can you link the zipped  file to here and I will get a tech to comment on it.

    GetSusp uses a process of elimination to list suspect files while Stinger uses specific or heuristic signatures. The password for the zip file is "infected"

     

    Paste the results on this thread for review.
