malware in ISO BIOS file

[ Edited ]

Having to update my BIOS of my T61p with Vista 64 via CD, I downloaded the following file

T61p 2.20 BIOS Update via CD

And my Avast 4.8 (VPS version 080821-0) dectected a Virus/Worm.  The Malware name was identified as Junkie-1027.

 

Should I worry??

Re: malware in ISO BIOS file

I have downloaded the same Bios update after reading your post and scanned it with Bitdefender Internet Security 2008 and it found nothing wrong with the file. I loaded the Bios update and haven't had any problems. This doesn't answer your question but I thought I would reply anyway. Having said that I would worry about any trojan,worms ect.ect. but maybe you got a false positive or my Bitdefender isn't catching it. Bitdefender updates itself every hour and my computer has never been infected that I know about anyway.

 

Cheers,

Re: malware in ISO BIOS file

I don't think a malware would have slipped into the official ISO BIOS file from Lenovo.com, if there is one, many people would have been affected and you would been seeing alot of people complaining about it on this forum.
