    OK OK. I think most of us have downloaded [glowpurple]something[/glowpurple] from the Antionline.com archives, and so have I. I downloaded a few DoS tools to test on myself, specifically BattlePongPro.exe (please do not convict me of anything nefarious, its redundant). Norton AV claims it is a "Trojan Horse"-- very general. Is it true most of these DoS tools are virri and trojans? Or is NAV just overprotective?

    Eh. some AVs call anything that can be considered "malware" a trojan. Don't think you have to worry about anything in the AO archive.

    I wouldn't sweat it. Some progs by the nature of what they do can fall under virus/trojan warnings. If you are unsure about it, block any outgoing access and see what your firewall reports say. I once bought a privacy/security cd and when I went to use it I was told there was a trojan on it. As it turned out the "Trojan" was actually one of the tools incuded but wasn't an actual "Trojan" per se. If the Hueristics on the AV or Firewall are heavy then there is a much better chance of getting a warning. Again I wouldn't sweat it but I would deny outgoing privileges to it unless you were testing/playing with the prog. Just my 2 cents.

    all DoS tools are trogans or virri by definition. they have a virus or trogan inbedded, and all it does is send it to someone.

    When did "ping -f" become a trojan horse? I must have missed that meeting.

    ROFL Problemchild. Like others have said, I wouldn't worry about it if you have a good firewall. Try tiny firewall or sygate (my personal fav). Then you can block all ports and then see if that prog tries to access the net. Hope this helps you
