    Here's my quandry of the day:

    I have a rooted phone (CM7 latest), and use K9 mail. I regularly do Titanium and Nand backups, and then save the backup files to my PC. Then, out of the blue, after running a regularly scheduled AV scan on my PC's backup drive, it detected "com.fsck.k9-20110512-050659.tar.gz" to be "Trojan-Dropper.Win32.Agent.emgj".

    First off - I hardly believe this to be a true positive. I can't be the first person to discover this (the file is dated May 12, 2011, and it was detected in late July?).

    Secondly - I simply just Quarantined the file since I have newer backups AND it's just K9 the app, not my actual email, which is stored on a seperate PC, and not detected. So no loss.

    But my real question is - has anyone else experienced anything like this before? Trojan-Droppers aren't fun...

    Thanks!
