Thank you, Robert.

If it is useful for the technicians, Windows Defender reports the malware 
attached to the ganakastadhyayi software as “trickbotsc!bit,” whatever that is.

Hopefully all is good in my side, I switched to avast and seem to be virus free 

Best wishes

I'm extremely sorry about the virus attack. This is a serious problem in India: 
I recall how once my computer returned from a computer repair shop – and then 
was infected beyond usability. Since then I have stopped using Windows and have 
been a happy user of Mac and Linux (my latest book was layouted using the Linux 
Mint distribution. It has excellent support for Indian scripts).

But that is of little help for those among us who, for whatever reason, are not 
free to choose their operating system – and for victims of current attacks.


I have reported the problem to Dr. Shivamurthy Shivacharya. He asked me the 
following question:

We have two websites:
hosting our news portal
hosting our Panini software

Are they getting malware warning in both the websites?

Meanwhile he has had his technicians investigate the site<>
 with some two dozen anti-virus programs, and he says the site in itself is 
clean. They are looking into the other site. (Meanwhile I have forwarded 
Aleksandar's second message about viruses in the Pāṇini software to him.)

I got the malware by installing the Panini software mentioned in the note, 
spent a good part of the morning removing viruses and upgrading my antivirus 

Thereby I arrived at a novel interpretation of the matter at hand: With respect 
to prohibition (of malware), doing something is paramount -- vipratiṣedhe paraṁ
