New virus warning

The archive util/virus/vprot.lha that was uploaded this morning contained a Trojan that installs a bootblock virus - if you downloaded that package, please delete it immediately. The archive was removed again, we're currently investigating the situation. It appears this is a new (!) virus that is not detected by existing antivirus software.

Many thanks to user 'Crashdisk' and the Virus Help Team for pointing out the problem just hours after the archive went online.
