Win32:Trojano-898 [Trj]?????
« on: January 11, 2005, 06:11:22 PM »
Hi I just got the latest Avast update and now all of a sudden it is saying that  the Win32:Trojano-898 [Trj] is found in C:\Program Files\TraySoft\PhoneTray\PhoneTray.exe Which is Phonetray program. It never did this until this new update that I got this morning. And I know that PhoneTry is a clean program. http://phonetray.traysoft.com/

So what is going on here?
I am running Windows 7 64 Bit, Intel Core 2 Duo 6700 2.66 GHz, 4GB Ram DDR2 and lots of Hard Drive space!

You can verify that it's a false-positive by submitting it to http://virusscan.jotti.dhs.org/ where it will be ckecked by various online AV programs.

Service statistics:

11124 files (7848 of those unique) have been uploaded & scanned since 31/12/2004, the day of the last database purge.
2299 of those 7848 files contained a virus or any other form of malware.
This page has been visited 21428 times in this time period.
This service managed to spot 229 pieces of malware no vendor used knew about at the time of uploading.
The service also warned against 1243 suspicious files without any help from scanner results.
However, 69 files reported to be OK were found out to be malware later (this is checked daily).
As far as can be told, all this together makes this service 99.12% accurate. However, since it is very well possible malware has been uploaded no scanner knows about at this time, this number is to be taken with a proper amount of skepticism.

No I am not sitting still! For those of you interested, a new, better version of this service is being developed. Click here for a sneak peek. It is not finished. It has bugs. Please use it for testing purposes ONLY.
If you have suggestions and/or comments, please send me them!

Even though 2 AVs report infection, I would suggest sending the infected file to avast.

If you are getting a virus warning that you believe is a false positive, then if you can zip and password protect ('virus', will do) the suspect file and send it to virus @ avast.com (no spaces).

Give a brief outline of the problem, the fact that you believe it to be a false positive and include the password in the body of the email. Some info on the avast version and VPS number (see about avast {right click avast icon}) will also help.

I've almost the same problem!
Avast finds "Win32:Trojano-898" in msa.dll! msa.dll is a audio plugin for Nero Burning ROM!
Only the newest virus definition 0502-1 has this false-positive!

Same problem here. I can't even update Nero because avast! doesn't allow that file to be installed.

It seems that I am stuck between 502-1 and 502-2
the scan now passes but when trying to reinstall a program it still rejects it and says that 502-1 wont pass it. The main display while running a scan indicates 502-1 while summary says 502-2..
hopefully this will get fixed soon.
