This is another case of the very annoying Avast! Antivirus, stupid FALSE POSITIVES. This type of fase positives scare people who don't now much about Computers and they end messing up their PCs, because Avast! is detecting Files that are 5 years old or older as viruses when they are not.
These executables are legitimate part of LG Firmware Autoupdate, The False Positives happened yesterday. This Files have been in my PC for more than 5 years, I have a LG DVD drive.
Yesterday, I checked them Online with Virustotal and the results are as follow:
fwcsetup.exe -- was detected by 2 engines between 44 as Win32:Malware-gen, by Avast and GData.
fwinfo.exe -- was detected by 2 engines between 44 as Win32:Malware-gen, by Avast and GData.
fwupdate.exe -- was detected by 2 engines between 44 as Win32:Malware-gen, by Avast and GData, and was also detected by 1 engine between 44 as TROJ_GEN.F47V0812, by TrendMicro-House Call.
Yesterday, I sent these files to Avast Labs. and told them to be False Positives, but with the new Virus Definitions of today morning, Avast! Antivirus still detect them as malware.
Avast please, fix-it!
