Hi,

Attached backdoor not recognized by Kaspersky or Norton 2004?

That zip-archive went right through our TrendMicro Virusgateway (newest
Pattern files: 797) :-( Seems like the scanner(s) have problems with
password-secured zips, will evaluate this later.

Well, what would you expect, that the virusgateway would brute-force crack the 
zip password ?  No.  It has only two options: 

A) Delete all password protected zipfiles regardless
  or
B) Let any and all password protected zipfiles through.


Option A) is not really [usually] acceptable in the real world. (YMMV)
