Key-logger (in a jpeg image?)

Just received this...

XZXZ,

"It sounds like a possible case of a false positive. If you would like to send us the zip file in question, we would be happy to scan it and confirm a false positive. You can send the zip file to us at..."

My apology to Karups! Sorry for impugning your reputation! The zip file in question caused a "false positive" for some reason.

Karups is and has been a safe and reliable source for adult content. Thank you for your understanding in working to clear this up!

Wittyguy (95) That is definitely unusual but something that has happened to me once before (not on Karups though). Most likely occurs when the website buys some goodies from a less than scrupulous middleman (aka - on the cheap) who is looking to really recoup on his investment. Sad to here but it's also a sign of things to come as I think we're going to see more creative ways of slipping viruses and such into our machines.

Karups first reply was "just had a couple guys in the office scan using malwarebytes and Avira Anti virus and we got nothing found in those 3 images."

Second reply was, "We absolutely do not put keylogger programs into your images or zips. That said I am sending your finds onto our tech department to make sure that nothing has been compromised on our side. I just loaded up those images you mentioned, as well as the zip file for them and my scanner did not report anything back.

I will let you know when I hear back."

Apparently the technology to embed malware in zip files, jpgs, pdf, xls, etc has been available for some time now...

:(

I received this message...

The set of Andrea, is an exclusive set from on our trusted photographers. This content comes in a different format and we have to process the content into the JPG format to make it web ready. Last night we also used "Kaspersy Internet Security 2011" which is widely regarded as the best antivirus software, to scan the set/files you mentioned, and they came out perfectly clean.

Can you please let me know what program you are using to scan for malware? And can you send over the log file that produced reporting the warnings you received.

I'm working with the software company in order to respond to the log file request...

If this turns out to be a wild goose chase because of a false-positive I'm going to feel like a dufus. I'm tempted to pull my original post until I know for sure. I hate to impute Karups as they are surely one of the most reputable adult content sites on the internet.

Well, I was a little surprised at the initial post.
I have always found Karups one of the best in terms of customer care.

Hi hardog (and others),

I've been reading the exchanges between you and our customer service rep, Brent, so I'm familiar with the situation. I too have tested the images and zips in the site thoroughly. To be specific, I checked it on a desktop of mine that has AVG Internet Security (not the free version of AVG), another desktop that has Webroot Antivirus with Spysweeper, and lastly I checked it on my laptop that has Kaspersky Internet Security on it.

None of our attempts to duplicate your results have succeeded. Each sweep or test that we run comes back stating that no warnings or suspicious files have been found.

Please let us know if you come up with anything else or if there is anything specific you'd like for us to do or look into. Also, if you would like to send us the log file from your anti-virus software, we can have a couple of techs that we work very closely with look at it.

Regards,
Jeff

Just sent this reply to Brent...'

Same thing occurs... same three images in Andrea set come up with Spector Pro 2010 8.0.3256 Keylogger . Fresh download of the zip file. New scan of the contents, same spyware hit.

Program used "Macscan".

I'll send you the three images if you want them (however you should be getting the same result by downloading the zip file and opening the zip...

The fact that your antivirus software isn't seeing this only means the culprits have done a job blinding the virus software you're using.

Sorry again!

Still waiting to hear from Macscan...

So the question boils down to this... can the "people" who write this type of malware successfully hide it from all the best virus protection software (for Windows) yet a little known "MAC" company called macscan can see it by name and serial number?

Just asking.

Some AV / Security software can be paranoid & flag up false positives.
