PNG virus detected in qbit Temp folder
« on: October 31, 2018, 03:56:16 PM »
antivirus detects virus in

C:\Users\User\AppData\Local\Temp\.qBittorrent

seeing some temp files that are PNG icons for the tracker "logo"

there is a PNG exploit and some icons could be loaded with this payload  - any way to disable this tracker logo feature ?

Disable favicons in advanced settings?

...and delete the existing PNG tracker pics?

that did the trick - it was the favicon for some of the trackers but since its a random name i cant tell what tracker was sending the infected PNG.
