MS Patch Tuesday updates
« on: April 09, 2013, 07:17:22 PM »
I just tried installing MS Patch Tuesday updates and Avast! 8 popped up warnings and quarantined several files.
Is anyone else seeing this issue with the MS updates?

The file names, location and malware name will help us to determine what action to take.

The file names, location and malware name will help us to determine what action to take.

I'll get the requested info asap.
I re-booted the PC with an OS using MSSE and updates install without issues.
I believe I got 10 updates today on the Win 7 x86 OS with Avast! 8.

Had the same problem as David_E, when running Windows Update on W7 SP1 (32bit).   

Avast placed a total of 6 downloaded files relating to KB2813170 into Virus Chest, including csrsrv.dll citing Win32:Aluroot-B (Rtk).  Probably a false positive, but can anyone confirm?

I attached a screen print of the Virus Chest.
Is this enough info?
I cancelled the Windows update when I started getting the alerts, so I don't know if there might have been more files with issues that.

Update KB2813170 was successfully  installed.
Virus Chest is empty.

Maybe it has been fixed with a Streaming Update?
I just installed the other 9 updates without issues.
I didn't retry KB2813170 yet.

Confirm issue now resolved, in that KB2813170 install sucessfully - my last streaming update was 19.43 BST which, presumably contained the fix.

I think that this is down to the way the updates are applied. I think that after the windows update these files would normally be removed. After windows reboots I don't think avast will find anything.

I don't think so.
The first attempt at applying KB2813170 failed.
The second attempt succeeded, but there were streaming updates installed after the first attempt.
I'm just guessing here, but seems to me the definitions were fixed for a FP...
