Since a recent update comodo has suddenly found the gael.worm.a worm in a rather large amount of exe files. This seems a bit strange to me since before the update a full system scan had run and found nothing.
Also, it seems they’re only in installer files (for instance civilization add-on packages from a reputable source) and none of the system files are found to be infected.

Are more people experiencing this and does that mean we are infected, or is it just a problem with the latest update?

(I ran both Ad-Aware and Housecall from Trend Micro and neither found any infection)

Thanks for any input!

That sounds like a false positive. I will move your topic to the F/P board.

Hi Woodhouse,

Please submit some of the detected file at

We are looking forward to verify this situation.

Thanks and regards,
