Has anybody else come across this sql injector, written by Zwell. The general consensus is that it although it works, there is a backdoor on the program. And when you scan it, it detects an IRC bot. Although according to a mailing list (can't remember which one) some posters said they checked everyhting out and it didnt modify their computer or communicate with an outside server( although it could just be the author saying this...) Anyway, here's the link if you want to check it out, and anyone else that has heard of it before, do you know where to get source code?
the original link doesnt seem to be working here's it uploaded here.
WARNING MAY (OR MAY NOT?) CONTAIN A BACKDOOR

WARNING................. that upload site pops a dating service advert........... you may not want that to happen depending on where you are?
This might help:
But AV utilities tend to do that with several security analysis tools, and some even complain if they find UPX
The author won't release the source so it boils down to whether or not you trust compiled binaries from him.

yeah i also heard from someone that if you unpack with UPX, and scan again, its clean, but I haven't tried this yet, I might do this now
Oh right I've just realised thats what you've done above. But what significance does this have? Does it prove it isn't a virus? also, what could I do to monitor the program, and make sure it isn't writing to registry or communicating with an outside server. Is there a software useful for this?
