Dear Sunbelt attendees,

while I found the conference great & well-organised (compliments to the 
organisers!), as a downside, I think a word of warning is necessary as 
well: I got a trojan virus file via the computers used for the 
presentations on my USB stick, and afterwards on my laptop. My 
colleague, who presented on a different computer, got the same virus.

The file containing the trojan is called "msw0vks.exe". It is an Italian 
language virus, adding an additional, malicious action "Apri cartella 
per visualizzare i file" to the list of options for handling memory 
sticks - which looks suspicious when you have an English-language 
computer, but can quickly be overlooked if the computer is Italian.

I have succesfully removed it with the PrevX software, other spyware 
detectors should do the job as well.

Hope this doesn't affect too many of us,
Christian
