Title: ReImage identifies Malware in Avast folder
Post by: David743 on July 08, 2017, 12:47:27 AM
A scan using ReImage has identified malware in both XP and Win 7. Inspection of ffl2.dll and scan using Avast and Malwarebytes does not show any problem. Path concludes with ffl2.dll-----TR/Crypt.XPACK.Gen2 as showm in screen shot. Don't really understand this path so what is going on ?

Hi Pondus,
Very surprised that avast forum would not be interested in a reported virus in an avast folder whether true or false. Needs a bit more than a brush off  :(

What can avast do about it?

When avast have a false positive, they are the one that need to fix it, since this is a reimage false positive it need to be reported to reimage so they can fix it

You can report it to avast lab if you want to

Why using a application that is rogue/not trusted/malware itself anyway ?

From the detection name given (TR/Crypt.XPACK.Gen2) it seems they are using Avira AV engine
