5.9.6 tagged by Symantic anti-virus

Postby RobertSlaughter » Fri Aug 21, 2009 4:05 am

The 5.9.6 version of WordPipe was just tagged on my system as infected with "W32.Induc.A" virus, which per Symantic
W32.Induc.A is a virus that adds itself to the Delphi compilation process so that all files compiled with Delphi will also be infected.

Symantic couldn't remove the virus, so the program was quarentined. This, of course, makes it difficult to use. :)

Hopefully an updated and cleaned 5.9.7 will be ready soon.

More information here: http://www.symantec.com/security_respon ... 16-3934-99

It appears this virus was discovered only a few days ago.

Other than this issue, WordPipe is (was) working fine based on the response to my earlier question.

Just did some "due diligence"; 5.9.6 is still the current version. Making sure I hadn't missed an update.

We have the same problem with WordPipe and ExcelPipe purchased 13 Aug 2009. McAfee quarantined both exe-files.

Yes - we updated all affected files within 12 hours of anti-virus programs actually detecting this virus for the first time. Not bad eh?

Kudos to google also for protecting consumers in this regard.

If you simply re-download your current release it will be virus-free.
