Thread: Pestpetrol

  1. #1
    This is what a guy At another board posted. I don't hav Pestpetrol, so I am asking if any1 else have Pestpetrol, and can they ran a test, and See if the "RAT" got through k-lite, or someother source.

    Thanx in advance

    Just to give a heads up, I updated Pest Patrol tonight, ran a scan, and found something disturbing in the codecs for Real Audio and Quicktime. Until a few days ago, I had always opted not to install these. Here are the logs:

    Here is the description of the RAT:

    It's quite possible something else came along, picked those 2 files out of the millions on my PC, and hid the trojans there, but that would be pretty low on the probability scale.

    Anyhow, knowledge is power

    Those two files are self-extracting WinRAR files. There is nothing wrong with them.

    Pest patrol is shit. I used it and it fucked up my computer.I think it searches for programs that ru along a similar pattern to what it describes, and jumps to the conclusions that it is a trojan. Thats my assumption. Tell me if I am wrong.
    Changed SPAN settings in sig a YEAR after it was removed

    You are correct Sir. After doing some research on Pest Patrol. I reached the conclusion, that program is crap. I read few other forums and shit. And found out, it has an Act of giving false positives.
