Title: 9-30 definitions - MSIL:GenMalicious-ALS [Trj]
Post by: wb1876 on September 30, 2014, 06:07:09 PM
Please fix the 9-30-2014 definitions, they are picking up an Outlook 2011 .ExSyncMap file as being MSIL:GenMalicious-ALS.

Any updates coming that will remove this false positive? With so much information provided in the different forums, I'd expect Avast to already release an update. Should I be looking for an alternative vendor?

We're getting 14100100 still even after updating, and still getting the MSIL:GenMalicious-ALS [Trj] message

We have the same problem on all of our Mac systems as well.  Changing Avast Preferences to "Just Block" and changing notifications is our temporary fix. Waiting on a virus definition update to resolve the issue.
