Sounds "odd"??

The viruses detected by RAV as BAT/RBTG.gen are all created by a virus generator. They usually format one of the hard-drives and delete system files and folders. They also append to "c:\autoexec.bat" in order to be automatically executed when the computer reboots.

The same generator creates scripts detected by RAV as BAT/RBTG.dr.gen, which only infect "c:\autoexec.bat" with BAT/RBTG.gen.

Evilness: Highly Destructive (causes major data or hardware loss)
Analyst: Catalin Sandu

Why don't you run the RAV on-line scanner and see if it's true??

Did online scan using Panda which took over 2 hrs and no virus detected.Marianna that online scan you gave me is the same as i used and it gave me this.C:\kubd.bat - BAT/RBTG.gen* -> Infected.
My c partition has the file that just says kubd.bat.It do'nt seem to be causing any trouble so maybe i should just delect it?Bob

Hi Hounddog

As Housecall AND Panda both didn't find anything - you do NOT have to worry, I would say.

You can delete the file - but wait a couple of days to see if you really do NOT need it. Maybe you put it on a floppy - so it is OFF your computer?
