Re: Runtime packed fsg virus...?
As folks have already mentioned here, just because an executable is packed with FSG, does not necessarily mean that it contains a virus. FSG IS popular however, with virus spreaders because the compression routines will hide the virus and make it impossible to detect by programs that detect viruses using CRC signatures and virus fragments.
