      On a serious note.. I don't think that the virus has anything to do directly with Teamspeak. Its just something you contracted along the way that poped up when you opened TS.

        I disabled norton last night whilst playing lock on on Hyper Lobby could this be the source? I have Zone Alarm on all the time and then there's this guy

        http://www.flightsimhq.org/hyperlobby/evidence.html

        Who seems to have bad things to say about HL. Everyone says he's mad and talking rubbish but now I'm not so sure.

        Also as a game officer should we be concerned that my PC has been compromised with regards to login details, etc?

            two other users over on ubi forums are saying the same thing - same virus when they run teamspeak. Anyone else?

              OK it looks like its a false alarm. weatherman from ubi forums posted this

              This is a a false alert from the AV software. You should download a new version of the TS client that does not have the keypress.dll name to avoid confusion.

              TS has released a new version with new .dll to keep the paranonia down.

                I was just wanting to know if this was Norton being paranoid or an actual virus treat inbedded in the software?

                Thanks

                all looks like its a false signature file from norton/mcAFFE

                but to be 100% safe we released that new package...
                VeneFicus: I have a download dated Jan 9th 2004 that i installed countless times. After Norton AV updated it detected a "virus" Theres no doubt this is a Symantec issue and not a real virus.

                  I was going to post about this last week but I figured I was the only one that didn't know.. LOL

                  keypress.dll is causing many virus detectors to due strange things. The forums have a zip you can download of just the fixed keypress.dll. There hasn't been a new release without keypress.dll. Incidently, keypress.dll is actually for VOX. I originally just deleted it but it gave me an annoying error everytime I started TS.

                    I too just got this Virus warning with Norton when I ran Teamspeak.
                    Same exact warning. Norton picked it up and deleted it.

                              It seems it's a false detection.
