running wine with an infected file


I believe i have ran a windows file under wine which is infected with a virus
I got this output from the terminal

VIRUS WARNING: PE module L"E:\\" has an invalid entrypoint (0x00000154) outside all sections (possibly infected by Tchernobyl/SpaceFiller virus)!
fixme:winmm:MMDRV_Exit Closing while ll-driver open
fixme:winmm:MMDRV_Exit Closing while ll-driver open

What does this mean?
Is my computer now infected?

Looks like you launched a file that was infected with the Chernobyl virus
Wine appears to have stopped it
but make sure not to run it in windows, and to do a good virus scan on your windows before you boot it again.

scuzzman is right!
But keep im mind that chernobyl virus is not >root package< and wine is just emulation

I doubt very highly that a Windows virus can do anything to harm your Linux system, but it might be able to infect the "Windows" system you set up under wine. Worse comes to worse, you might have to nuke your wine configuration and start over again.
