    Default Re: Suspicious File Packer

    I still have the the d/l'ed codec file which I suspect was bogus and is causing me problems (http://forums.spybot.info/showthread.php?t=7416), can I use the SFP to send it to you for analysis?

    Hi there.

    Please send the file zipped to: detections(AT)spybot.info

    Put the name of the file/infection into subject matter, cheers.

    OK, I have the file now in a .zip format (it was an .exe), and sent it that way to you.

    I ran sfp.exe and it created a .cab, but I don't know what to do with the .cab folder??

    Once you send the file (xxxx.cab) you can delete it and SFP to
    Not quite sure what you mean by .cab folder

    Your small tool, the Suspicious File Packer, creates a cab folder on the desktop, it is not clear or obvious how to get the suspicious file into it, in order to send.

    Hi
    If you ran SPF and imput a file , example
    c:\windows\badfile.dll
    and click continue it will have put the file in the .cab that will appear on your desktop, understand ?

    i've got the concept, like, put the file into the cab folder, but I don't know the mechanism re the SFP program . Any way I zipped the suspect file and sent it to detections.

    Will that work?
