  • Also blocked by corporate firewall, version gvim-7-4-2066.exe. I was told the package is "obfuscating a payload using a crypter".

  • Current installation package (gvim-7-4-1641.exe) is blocked by my corporate firewall because of HotBar.G_2 (Adware) included in the package.

  • Trojan program is included in the package. Fortunately my spyware terminator caught it. The Trojan program name is Trojan.Downloader.Delf.sge and it is hiding inside diff.exe. Be aware!
