Hi,


This is what I built for use in my living room.




Everything is controlled from a 7" touchscreen, and a second 22" monitor is used to watch movies.


You can find more details on http://dhs.webatu.com .

Yes, everything you see is made by me. I assembled the hardware and wrote the software. Check the "technical" for some links to the components I used to write the software.


You can download the software and take a look for yourself. My site is http://dhs.webatu.com .


The touchscreen is not portable. It's connected with a USB cable.

I am completely embarrased. I have no intention to spread a virus at all. This is my private project which I just would like to share with other people.


The site is plain HTML made with NetObjects Fusion. I also distribute a zip file with the software, did you get the message when opening the software ?


I'll get some info on this virus.


I apologize, and the site will go offline if I get more of these messages.

Hi Soitjes,


No, I didn't get that far as to open the software. I went on the site twice, the first time I started reading around and after about 5 secs my Norton gave me that message. I then closed all my windows and ran a full scan but apparently nothing got downloaded on my computer. Later I went back - this time from my laptop and the same thing happened. There is something that Norton doesn't like about that site, and with all these viruses floating around I just didn't want to take any chances... Generally, my Norton has been pretty reliable in terms of finding stuff, but you never know.


Regards

I did some research on this virus, and I'm actually quite confident that it's a false positive :


- I did a full scan of my system, and it's ok.

- In the virus description at Symentec I see that it's detectable by the file svchost.com in the windows directory, but I don't have that file (I also checked hidden files)

- my site is dhs.webatu.com, but the virus alerts was for another site on webatu.com.

- that site in question does not exist (at least, I get an error page).

- I have posted this message on a few multimedia forums, nobody complained about a virus.


However, I will open a support ticket with the provider just to make sure. Maybe they have heard of this before.


If you agree with a false positive, could you adapt your message. I fear that I won't get much visitors with such a message.


Thanks in advance,


Soitjes.
