One of our readers, Melvin, was kind enough to send us a heads up on an issue with CA DAT files. The site refers to a "false positive" detection for Win32/Amalum for detections via Microsoft Windows Service Pack 3 and commercial application, Cygwin. The files are quarantined and the file is appended with the extension "*.AVB". The files will still be intact and organizations running ISS should restore files from the GUI. For those using ITM, a search tool is available from CA support upon request.
Please update your signatures to DAT 6606 to ensure protection from the false positive. Here is a link to the CA statement.
