2. The virus W32/Induc-A was recently found in 2 TC-related Tools (CopyToTabs and Tc_But_Exe) and the following plugins:
These tools and plugins were not created by ourselves, but by users of our software. The old versions available via our addons page are not affected, because the virus is relatively new. The virus isn't specific to Total Commander plugins, it has affected many standalone plugins too.
The virus doesn't contain any malicious functions except for spreading itself. It installs itself into the Delphi compiler, so all programs created with this compiler will be infected too. If you aren't Delphi programmer and use one of these plugins, please update them from the above links. If you are a Delphi programmer, please read these links [1 Sophos], [2 FAQ] and [3 FAQ] for more information.
Please note that Total Commander plugins are independent executable code like other programs you download from the Internet. Therefore the same care should be taken as when downloading programs, e.g. using a virus scanner or uploading the file to www.virustotal.com. Current scanners can detect this virus.
