Your link does not work for me. (internal server error)

You can check this 2 links for the last 2 files:
http://www.virustotal.com/file-scan/rep ... 1326023658
http://www.virustotal.com/file-scan/rep ... 1326023743

If you check the links, I think there is not really a virus in the files. Before we publish a girc version, check all the files. However some stupid virus scanners find something. A reason for this can be a file that can check and display your hardware in girc. So the result "Misc/Motherboardmonitor" is correct. But it's not dangerous because it just displays your hardware in girc.

How to solve this: Change the settings in your virus scanner so it ignores the file. Or write a mail to the virus scanner support team. Maybe they can help you. I cannot do anything from my side.

I already did once. But they were not interested.
