it apears there is a virus or a virus signature found in autoitsc.bin that was installed from the version v3.2.12.1 released (12th June, 2008)

can you advise if this indeed a virus or just a 'problem' with my anti-virus checking

Have you searched our forums before posting a bug here?
There is a sticky about this subject in the support forum: Are my AutoIt EXEs really infected?

  • Resolution set to No Bug
  • Status changed from new to closed

I'm tired of these already. People really need to search first.

Someone needs to hack the bug tracker (and forums ideally) so that if it detects the word "virus" in a post it suggests they read our virus information thread before they are actually post their bug. :P

(Not a serious suggestion, but wouldn't it be nice?)

Saunders, you may be on to something there. At least for Trac. But it boils down to, "Does Valik want to play with Python again and does Valik have time to get anything done". I'm pretty sure something could be put together with the Trac API. I've already done some stuff with Subversion post-commit hooks to do Trac related things via the various APIs. It makes me wonder if there's a Trac-side pre-ticket-create event that could be tapped into to re-direct people to certain pages based on data detected in the summary/title.

If I knew anything about Python I might volunteer to help. Not that you'd want my help anyway. ;)
