Kaspersky detected Trojan in python package

i runed an Virustest today because i got some Issues with the  webcam (It got enabled when i plugged in the AC-Adaptor of my Notebook until i started Cheese).

After all Kaspersky deteced an Trojan ArcBomb in the "/usr/lib/python2.7/test/testbz2_bigmem.bz2" archive and espacially in the Pacman cached File "python2-2.7.4-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz//python2-2.7.4-1-x86_64.pkg.tar" Maybe it is a fail detection or not.

Best regards

Re: Kaspersky detected Trojan in python package

How exactly did you test for malware?  I'm not too sure myself, but it looks like the archive in question is tied to a python script in the python2 package used to perform memory tests, using blocks of "empty" data of varying sizes.  If that's the case, then it might function similarly to an arcbomb, but technically wouldn't be one.  From what I've seen, it's a legitimate part of the python2 package, but I'm no expert.
