vrf VT100 zip file compromised

Question asked by hansolofalcon on Jan 25, 2005
Hello from Gregg C Levine
A while ago there was a discussion concerning the VT100 functions. And
how to have VEE understand them. Someone found someplace an Active X
control which provided them, and made it available to the group. I
finally looked at the copy that I pulled from my message. (Which I
can't find!) I discovered that the individual's anti-virus program
which was not properly configured, in my opinion, decided to delete
the control, based on a flawed rule, and it inserted this message:
FILE DELETED
------------

Antigen for Exchange removed vt100.zip->VT100.OCX since it
was found to match the FILE FILTER= *.* file filter.

I do not believe that Exchange add in was properly configured, since
that kind of file does not spread viruses, they only spread via VBS
files, and SCR files, and of course via EXE files. Now if the
individual who posted the original would kind repeat where he, (or
she), found the Active X control, I would greatly appreciate it.

Shaun if your reading this, and Sky hasn't caused a major malfunction
within your system perhaps you'd want to offer to hold the control?
