#800 closed Bug report

Multiple Trojan bugs

Reported by: debichu Owned by:
Priority: normal Component: Other
Keywords: Cc: debichu, Tim Kosse
Component version: Operating system type:
Operating system version:


When uploading with the FileZilla v2.2.9 client, Norton
Internet Security pops up with 'Secutiry alerts', and
is blocking the intrusion attempt. This is multiple
trojan horses, including "ShockRave", "SubSeven",
"Bugs", "DeepThroat" and other trojan horses.

At this state I do not have any screenshots of it, but
it can be arranged if needed.

Deinstall all Norton stuff, it's a completely useless piece
of crap.

So you're saying that Norton pops up randomly just for fun,
or is there something I'm missing here?

Well Norton Internet Security plays with the users anxiety
about malicious software by claiming presence of certain
trojans just because some traffic is incoming on some port.
It does not check why the traffic is incoming. In this case
it is the extremely easy to parse FTP protocol. Every good
firewall would have said nothing in this case.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
