This virus slipped past Mcafee, The Cleaner and NAV, all updated with the latest dats.  It was detected by Trend Micro's webscan at http://housecall.antivirus.com
This is a concern.  It is the second one lately that has not been detected by the major scanners.  This is not a new virus, the stealth is possibly in the packaging.  It was in an executable (.exe program file).
