Can someone try this:

1) open a USELESS text file by an editor
2) insert the string "Z0MBiE" in it and safe the file. (Second letter is zero, the 'i' is in small letter, the other letters are capitalized)
3) My Mcafee AV immediately said that the text file was a virus and deleted it.

Okay, Z0MBiE is the name of a virus writer, but does it mean anything related to him is a virus?
