AvastUI.exe VirusTotal scan
« on: March 31, 2012, 09:23:34 PM »
Hi. Today I scanned AvastUI.exe with virus total. When VirusTotal was done analysing AvastUI.exe , the detection ratio was 1 / 42. Results:

Antivirus Result Update AhnLab-V3 - 20120331 AntiVir - 20120330 Antiy-AVL - 20120331 Avast - 20120331 AVG - 20120331 BitDefender - 20120331 ByteHero Trojan.Exception.gen.101 20120328 CAT-QuickHeal - 20120331 ClamAV - 20120331 Commtouch - 20120331 Comodo - 20120331 DrWeb - 20120331 Emsisoft - 20120331 eSafe - 20120328 eTrust-Vet - 20120331 F-Prot - 20120331 F-Secure - 20120331 Fortinet - 20120331 GData - 20120331 Ikarus - 20120331 Jiangmin - 20120331 K7AntiVirus - 20120331 Kaspersky - 20120331 McAfee - 20120331 McAfee-GW-Edition - 20120331 Microsoft - 20120331 NOD32 - 20120331 Norman - 20120331 nProtect - 20120331 Panda - 20120331 PCTools - 20120326 Rising - 20120331 Sophos - 20120331 SUPERAntiSpyware - 20120329 Symantec - 20120331 TheHacker - 20120331 TrendMicro - 20120331 TrendMicro-HouseCall - 20120331 VBA32 - 20120330 VIPRE - 20120331 ViRobot - 20120331 VirusBuster - 20120331

I know ByteHero is wrong. AvastUI.exe isn't a "Trojan.Exception.gen". How in the world is AvastUI.exe a Trojan.Exception.gen?

You have already answered yourself in saying you know bytehero is wrong, obviously its a false positive :)

Why did you feel the need to scan AvastUI.exe in the first place ???

AVs always flag each other as "infectious"......some people claim it is solely for marketing purposes, but it really has a lot to do with how an anti-virus behaves.

I don't know why I scanned. I was just bored at the moment.

Why don't you update to Google Chrome 18?
