FVR32.com Trojan in UOSU download?

    UPDATE! I found a site to download it... it was on a forum that stated the virus dropping problem and they have cleaned it up and posted two links to download it from a mirror site... if anyone wants the clean download... PM me.

    I recently got a new computer... so I had to download everything again, including my UOSU program that I use for reporting.

    DO NOT DOWNLOAD FROM BROTHERSOFT or the actual uosu website!

    FYI- I'm not saying all downloads from brothersoft are suspect... I'm sure they monitor their wares... but the UOSU download is corrupted.

    I didn't realize this was where the trojan I found came from... fvr32.com... but I installed a virus checker to run in the background and when I tried to open the program.. it alerted me that the trojan was detected and trying to infiltrate my system again. It locked it off... I closed the program and tried again just to be sure... Yep... that download is where my trojan came from.

    So... fyi... if you need uosu... don't go to that site. I have emailed the site to let them know as well.

    Awesome! Now I have to find the program elsewhere.

    If that's the URL that points to the infected file, you shouldn't post it.

    Yeah yeah yeah... I tried that DL but it's set as a rar file and I don't have a rar reader... new computer = still setting stuff up. Sooo... before I decided to download a bunch of crap on my system... I thought I'd see if I could find it in another format.

    Lessons learned... lessons learned...

    And I posted the link because I didn't want anyone to go there and download from there. Mods? Should it be removed?

    You could have said 'The download on Brother Soft.com' stops anyone from accidently clicking the link at all.

    I've been caught out by this Virus too when trying to find a link on Google. :(

    To OP, or anyone looking to unzip compressed files, get 7zip. That's what I use.

    I was just worried about bashing Brothersoft because of one download. But I changed the original post. THANKS SNAKEMAN!


    Ok... so I downloaded 7zip (thanks G.v.P.) and then went to the actual UOSU website. Once the download was complete... I attempted to extract the files... 7zip couldn't open them. Ok... so I tried a different program... downloaded WinRAR and again tried to extract the files. No go...

    Curious... I double clicked the EXE file within the opened extraction software... and ACK! the antivirus red screen of doom... trojan virus detected. AGAIN? Now... the virus software vaults the virus and opens the UOSU software. BUT... everytime I open it will bring up the trojan. No choice... delete the entire file.. again... and email uosu.net.

    Ok... so anyone know of any other screenshot utilities that I can use that will work like this one? OR does anyone have a clean download of this program?

    I personally just use the Printscreen key to put a screencap into the clipboard, and paste it into a graphics program. I can do several of these if I have multiple waiting open files, and go paste, switch, return to game, cap again, etc.

    I think that xfire has a screencap function built in that works with UO, but I've not used xfire in almost a year.
