FileRepMalware?
« on: May 16, 2013, 06:18:09 PM »
Hi there, does anyone know what avast! means by "FileRepMalware"?

I'm getting it on my Macromedia Flash 8 application that I've used for about 2 years alert-free. But today, I tried opening and I get what is seen in the picture. (tried opening it four times) As you can see, I've scanned it from the Virus Chest and it gives "-- no virus --". I've tried restoring it and then scanning it but it just says "Scan completed, but some items could not be scanned", I checked the scan details and about 40 files attempted to be scanned but they have "archived or passworded".

Think this is safe?

seem to be False Positive, a file this old should have more then 5 hits if it was malware

Final rating for the file is unknown It only isn't a false positive when we do not have to deal here with a cracked version.
The generic find in that case is for a Meredrop variant is with a supposed crack, please test the file in another antivirus product
before reporting...see: http://v.virscan.org/W32/Dropper.AOLR%20(Exact).html
