Description

Bloodhound is not the name of a virus, but a message displayed by Symantec's Norton Anti-Virus when it thinks it may have found a new virus.

You may like to re-scan your system with Sophos Anti-Virus - if it is a virus that Sophos knows about it will tell you its correct name. If Sophos does not find a virus please send a sample for analysis. Our virus analysts will be able to ascertain quickly whether it is truly a new virus or a Norton Anti-Virus false alarm.
