I've been a long time user of the Linux VLC, but I just downloaded the 
Win32 client to try it out on a machine here at my work, and I discovered 
tha the Win32 VLC binary installation package (current release:
http://www.videolan.org/pub/videolan/vlc/0.4.1/win32/vlc-0.4.1-win32.exe ) 
is infected with the Troj/Momma-B Trojan type Win32 virus.

More information on this virus is available at following places:

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news... and I'm not sure if it's been 
reported before... but felt you guys should know ;-)
