    Since the latest update to AV from www.avast.com reports cygwin1.dll infected with Win32.Trojan-gen.

    Sounds like it could be a generic false alarm, so have mailed them to let them know. Will let you know as soon as I get a response.

    Can anyone confirm the false alarm with another AV product?

    Interested to see what they say. My protection suite doesn't have a problem with it.

    If you install the latest cygwin from www.cygwin.com SVCD2DVD will overwrite cygwin1.dll that is bundled with the one from cygwin.
    SVCD2DVD v2.5, AVI/MPEG/HDTV/AviSynth/h264->DVD, PAL->NTSC conversion.

  6. from the guys at Avast:


    you are right, it's a false alarm. The file is the cygwin library in
    fact. Thank you for notice us, we'll repair it ASAP.
