While we'd obviously be happy to work with antivirus vendors so that
they have the facts, the truth is that one of their customers calling
them is going to have far more effect than us contacting them. Having 10
or more customers call is really likely to get something done.

So, if your antivirus software is reporting dnetc.exe is a trojan,
please contact them and ask them to fix their database.

BTW, as I mentioned before, it would be useful for them to contact us
with information about what they've seen from the trojans, such as what
email address they're reporting on.
