IsoBuster v0.99 has been added to CD Media World.

IsoBuster is a CD/DVD utility which lets you explore a CD File System while by-passing Windows. Here are the main features:

  • Better Error handling and several retry-mechanisms to aid in getting the data anyway (or at least partially).
  • More CDs stay 'readable' after problems (such as Buffer Underrun)
  • Read and extraction from CD-i, VCD, SVCD, CD-ROM, CD-ROM XA, DVD, DVCD, ...
  • MPG (*.dat) Extraction and dat2mpg 'in one'.

And it supports the *.DAO, *.TAO (Duplicator), *.ISO (Nero, BlindRead, Creator) & *.BIN (CDRWin) CD Image types.

Arthur's Generic SafeDisk Emulator v1.0
GameFix released Arthur's Generic SafeDisk Emulator, it works similar to the generic patch from Laxity as it will remain resident in memory while playing a backup of a SafeDisc protected game.
UT402P.ZIP Trojan Clean-Up
[E-Mail]...Yes you are right about the trojan....the trojan is BackDoor-G.ldr and not the one you say, Norton can find it only after you have execute the specific file and create the windos.exe.

It is very easy to remove the trojan, you have to be off-line and DON'T delete the windos.exe.

Perform the following registry change:

Run REGEDIT or a similar program and search for windos.exe. edit the value and remove the windos.exe from the registry, after that you may search with the AntiVirus program to find and delete the windos.exe file!!

Here is a picture to take a look what I mean with the registry

Thanks Nick for the above info!

Virus Alert! 
It seems that the latest Unreal Tournament v4.02 [US] Fixed EXE #2 (UT402P.ZIP) is infected by a Virus/Trojan... We sometimes get reports of possible infected files but usually they are false alarms. This time it is not...

Before the files are uploaded, all files are thoroughly checked here with the latest McAfee AntiVirus Scan software but it seems that McAfee doesn't detect this one yet!

The virus has been detected by Norton AntiVirus as backdoor.subseven.20 which seems to be spread by a generated file called: windos.exe
