strawberry-perl-5.10.0.6.msi <http://strawberry-perl.googlecode.com/files/strawberry-perl-5.10.0.6.msi> (July, 2009) Windows XP Pro SP3 File readelf.exe installed to C:\strawberry\c\bin Detected as virus "Trojan horse Generic 14.AUXY" by AVG Anti-Virus Free Edition 8.5.409 using virus DB 270.13.99/2372 This is believed to be a "false positive" and the program has been submitted to Grisoft as such. Nonetheless, I wanted to make you aware of this problem in the unlikely event that the file actually IS infected. Michael Hall, Technical Consultant
