Hello All
Just wanted to warn our users about the possibility for infection using the site OXID.COM to download the program Cain&Abel network "sniffer"(wifi network identifier ect.).The website offers you to download the file and then sends you the infection.Luckily AVG caught it and took care of it.I'm not sure if it is the wesite or the program itself but i would imagine that any website would know exactly what they are offering.So users beware.

I believe you have entered the wrong URL by using the .com suffix.

OXID Corporation has been recognized as the world's leading manufacturer of medical laser articulated arms for over 30 years.


I was unable to locate any such download at the URL you posted. However when googling for Cain&Able I find it hosted at oxid.it
