    Hello, a co-worker's anti-virus saying that the backups that I saved to dropbox contain trojans. Is there a file in there that could be mistaken as a trojan or is this actually something I should worry about?

    It says specifically backdoor.php.r57shell.i trojan horse.

    I'd check the site/server for a successful hacking attack - this post may help

    You can also download and scan your backups - Most of the frontline AV scanners detect this trojan, although they use various names - heres a list of scanners and file names (there may be more) http://r.virscan.org/672f6e6e06261ec655ac5f1abc3b633d
