Has anyone on this forum heard if a virus called " NAV114.tmp "?

I recently sent an email to a person I know in Ottawa. The email contained several government weblinks that I copied and pasted into the body of the email. My friend emailed me back to inform me that my email apparently had a virus by the above name. His anti virus software apparently caught it and it said that the source was my email and that it was in one of the weblinks.

I did a complete scan of the email and links but it turned up nothing at all. The links had been also sent to 2 other ppl on my list but they have had no problem with it at all.

Would anyone know what could be going on?

Thanks;

Dougie

My first thought would be to wonder which antivirus he was using. All of them will occasionally report a false positive - i.e. they will "detect" a virus when there is no virus there.

I find only one reference to NAC114.tmp - http://www.bomul.com...0...p;id=16189 in Korean. Part of Google's quaint translation:

I don't think you have anything to worry about, other than the difficulty of communicating with your friend.

This would be one of the temporary files created during a Norton Antivirus scan. This is not the original name of the virus --- could you get the original filename before it was flagged by Norton?

I did email my friend in Ottawa who complained to me that one of my emails had a virus. I asked him for the original file name and he emailed back that it was "test" LOL.

Looks like it was a false alarm:)

Thanks for your help guys.
