When my BOINC downloaded the latest chunk for processing my AntiVirus (Kaspersky) went berserk.
I have now restarted my machine 4 times in order to clean that thing out, and now had to resort to stopping BOINC alltogether.

The Virus found was: Backdoor.Win32.Alphabot.v

Can anyone official please comment on this?

I'd very much dislike discontinuing work on this project...

This one started popping up for me as well with Kaspersky. I've sent the file to them to verify.
