I found a suspious JPG on my computer. I lack the skills to look at the file and see if it's using an exploit. Do you have a way to submit the file or use some sort of tool to see if the file is legit or an exploit?

What makes it suspicious? Where is it located on your computer? Name of file?

You can scan the file by right clicking the file. In the menu, look for scan with (the name of your antivirus). Click on Scan With, your AV will then scan just that file. If you see any options to scan with malware scanners (Superantispyware, Spybot, etc) scan with it also.

It was in my WoW\Interface\Addons\Healbot directory. It has nothing to do with Healbot.

I've been told any jpg, com, bat, html, or scr file in my Addons directory could be a source of getting a keylogger or virus on my system. I recently had my account hacked, but I have not been able to identify the malware that gave away my password.

I scanned it with Norton and it came up clean.

The best thing for you to do is post
HERE: Am I infected? What do I do?


Please provide as many details as possible about the issue, this will enable someone to give you specific advice concerning your issue. (You previously posted about this same issue-that topic was closed because you formatted your drive. Please mention your previous infection when you post in Am I Infected?.)
