  1. Hi, I have been away for a while. Returned today, and ran the latest update and all the Python keylogger stuff has disappeared. Thanks to the lavasoft folks who sorted this one out. Al Moran.
  2. Hi, as far as I am aware there has been no update on this topic for over a week (since). Lavasoft have said that this is a false positive. But the first attempt at a fix to remove this false positive from the scan failed. So I presume they are still working on it. Cheers, ALM.
  3. Hi, as requested I have submitted a scan log file. Cheers, Alm
  4. Hi, I downloaded the update but I am still getting the exact same result as in my first post. As recommended I have submitted 2 of the 'offending' files. Cheers, ALM.
  5. Hi, thanks for all the replies. Since my original post I have followed the advice offered by GRAFX. However I need to use the Python installation for my work. As soon as I re-install a version of Python again Ad-Aware flags the same files as being Win32.Trojan.Keyloggers. I have done new scans with XoftSpy, Pestpatrol and Highjack This among others. Nothing shows up in these scans. I have used six different system scanning tools from Sysinternals and none of them show up any problems. I have scanned network traffic using ethereal. Nothing at all shows up. I have installed Anti-keylogger and it says that nothing unusual is happening. I have compared the versions of the python files in question with versions on different machines and they seem to be identical. In the end I have followed the advice in GRAFX's second respone and submitted one of the files in question through the Lavasoft file submission process. So I hope that they will be able to give a definitive response. It appears that, as brianski said, the Ad-Aware software is being a bit overzealous. I hope this is the case. This has already cost a fair bit of time and money. But if it turns out that the Ad-Aware scan results are accurate it could cost a lot more! Thanks again, Al Moran.
  6. Hi, running Ad-Aware on my PC today led to a report of 24 critical objects. The majority were files the rest were all registry entries related to these files. All 24 objects were reported with a name of Win32.Trojan.Keylogger and a category of Keylogger. All of the files were part of various installations of the Python programming language. I have included a link to a screen grab of one of the scanning results screen tabs here: Link to screenshot of Ad-Aware scan results Searching the web on this issue has yielded no results. Indeed using google to query www.lavasoftsupport.com with query terms such Win32.Trojan.Keylogger has yielded nothing. I have scanned the same PC and files using the latest versions of Spyware Doctor, AVG antivirus and Stinger and they have not reported any of the same files as having any problems. It could well be that Ad-Aware is picking up something that the other scanners have missed. Given the serious threat level that a keylogger rpresents I do not want to ignore the warning produced by Ad-Aware. So I have 2 questions. 1) Can you please tell me if there is any way I can validate the results of the Ad-Aware scan? 2) Is it possible that Ad-Aware has picked up something that is legitimate but that matches a profile of a Trojan/Keylogger and is reporting it so to be safe? Many thanks in advance, Al Moran
