According to my weekly scan of hard disk, firedll.dll from my mozillafirebird directory is a Trojan Horse (nice lot of detail there symantec!) and a password revealing program is backdoor.ciadoor. With the distinct lack of information that symantec are giving with these files that have been on my pc for weeks and haven’t changed – I am not impressed.

    It’ll be a false positive – I get those from time to time. Usually the next time you update your definitions you’ll find that it ignores the file.

    Complain to Symantec! False positives shouldn’t happen it’s just sloppy detection. They detected Macromedia Flash Player and files created by Flash a couple of years ago and a couple of adware removal tools too … I remember both causing a great deal of pain.

    So this backdoor.ciadoor isn’t really a virus? I’ve been tearing up the net trying to find the antivirus for this thing all morning. So what should I do, just leave the file it says is infected with this thing alone? ARRRGGGGHHH! Help here please
