Hi, Im running Grisofts AVG free edition and it comes up with this virus detection
"trojan horse IRC/Bd.SdBot.53". I have searched all the search engines i know and cant find anything about it anywhere, does anyone have any experience with this trojan? or is it possible it is just the Antivirus software making it up thinking theres one there and there really isnt? any help would be great,
Cheers

Strange, I don't find it in AVG's database, or any of the other major antivirus sites. Could be a false positive. <_<

Run a free scan here: http://housecall.antivirus.com/

I would guess that AVG will update their definition soon to remove this. It's probably another variant of this infection: http://securityrespo...or.sdbot.s.html
