Here are the results of the scan:
Results of a file scan
This is the report of the scanning done over "rundll32.exe" file that
VirusTotal processed on 12/05/2004 at 02:27:29.
VirusTotal is a free service offered by Hispasec Sistemas. There are no
guarantees about abailability and continuity of this service. Even when
the detection rate given by the use of multiple antivirus engines is
far superior to the one offered by only one product, this results DO
NOT guarantee the harmlessness of a file. There is no such a solution
that can offer a 100% rate of efectiveness recognizing virus and
Perhaps it is legitimate.
I did a little more investigation and learned that it was:
that wanted outbound access.
