The case against the exe -- it's compressed. *gasp*

Many of those antivirus detect it's compressed yet are too stupid to decompress it before rendering a verdict. Get an f'n clue, eh!

Extracted with http://upx.sourceforge.net , here's the CLEAN report:

http://www.virustotal.com/file-scan/report.html?id=8b6e3d58a7b82fdca167dd546831610774945b7a51b6c722eb9e81f8e427e632-1323170742

Thus it's all about false positives, as is often the case with fear mongering antiviru$ $oftware and compressed executables.

The slanderous, ingnorant prevx page is a joke, I wish those filthy web-clogging fearmonger$ would shove their $tuff up their whatevers until they bleed to death and get eaten by maggots.

sincerely,
sweet & gentle

(sorry people, I'm just fed up with this stuff)

Now that I've vented, let me amend my statement by saying that the ones who didn't flag the file in the first report should be commended for doing things right! They probably did decompress the file and thus reported correctly (clean), which underscores the importance of trusting only the trustworthy.

General recommendation.

Using virustotal, look at three vendor's results:
if DrWeb, Kaspersky and VBA32 indicate 'clean' - it's always clean. Doesn't matter what others say :-)
