Hello, I have been working on my own wxapp that I bundle with py2exe, today my AVG software found the same trojan horse: PSW.Generic4.KTX. Is this a real trojan horse or is the AVG software finding something that isn't real? thanks.

Just had a report yesterday from one of my users reporting that the
latest Kaspersky AV reports my py2exe 0.6.6 generated exe's as
containing "Trojan-Spy.Win32.KeyLogger.jm" virus.

I use AVG and checked my machine yesterday evening but did not get any
report. Just to be sure I updated AVG just now and I also get the same
trojan reported as your user (but AVG could clean it).

The user and I also checked with online scanners yesterday which
reported the files as being clean:

- TrendMicro HouseCall
- Panda TotalScan
- http://www.virustotal.com/vt/ - this one is very interesting as it
use 8 different AV engines (Avast, AVG, BitDefender etc).

I just posted py2exe/run.exe to be scanned with virustotal.com, will
report back when I get the results - about 10 minutes or so.

We will have to figure out how to best report this to the different AV
