That's scary, even if AVs are doing this.

Shows that they could hide stuff in whatever, as long as Windows

(And even then, they could just bundle an unarchiver that is clean,
allowing them to use virtually any format!)

Elive Linux is in my and many others' opinion, the best distro ever!
It is the distribution of the future, yet it is so lightweight that it
revives the past. Check it out! elivecd.org
