About Android:FakeInst-EY
« on: March 21, 2013, 09:30:01 AM »
Hi everyone,

it seems that this false positive detection somehow got through our systems to everyone. I'm sorry for that. Don't worry though, there should be a virus definitions update soon that will remove this detection. I'm going to reroute all topics to this one and lock them so everyone knows what's happening. I'll post here when the update is out so everyone can do a manual update of their definitions to fix this (or you can, of course, wait for the automatic update to happen, but manual will most probably be faster in this case).

Hi,

the latest update should be version 130320-01. In case of user apps, you can run apps scan which should clear the detections. In case of system apps, running the apps should clear the detections (that applies for user apps as well, but it should be faster to just run the apps scan).

Sorry for the offtop, but the name of the update is the date it was released, right? So you just cancelled today's update? Mine is 130321-00 and no update is available yet. Also, what does (in 4 hours) mean near the update version title? What in 4 hours? Update will be available, or what?
