I apologize for posting this topic in two forums but I am new to the site and wasnt sure which forum to use. I just got the following message when one of my users tried to download rkill:

This email is from the Barracuda Web Filter. We have detected and blocked the download of: VIRUS Trojan.Hupigon-33703
from the server:download.bleepingcomputer.com
with the URL of:http://download.bleepingcomputer.com/dl/e5daf81ea85b9a75376c9c380f3db733/4fd0c27b/windows/security/security-utilities/r/rkill/rkill.exe

I know that my Sophos anti-virus initially detected some programs like Combofix as a virus but this is a new issue and I have never gotten an alert from the Barracuda Web filter before. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

I have alerted Grinler to your Am I Infected topic: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic456239.html

To Avoid confusion I will close this one and please follow any instructions in the other topic.

Thank you for bringing this to our attention.
