DVDDecrypter.exe false positive?
« on: May 09, 2013, 01:37:11 PM »
This is an old exe file that I have had for years, but today Avast detected a threat.

Virustotal.com gives a 2/46 result:

Could this be a false positive?

Pondus is right here, also consider this info here: http://www.file.net/process/dvddecrypter.exe.html
The find up of registry defragmentation could have been a reason for that FP...
But it has never been seen as a threat: http://www.google.com/url?q=http://www.runscanner.net/lib/DVDDecrypter.exe.html&sa=U&ei=AI2LUcKFEonE0QX4voDIDg&ved=0CBgQFjAAOAo&usg=AFQjCNHNrSSom1DOxAxJSM2AIZfbnKxBYw
and also here: http://www.threatexpert.com/files/dvddecrypter.exe.html

Cybersecurity is more of an attitude than anything else. Avast Evangelists.

Use NoScript, a limited user account and a virtual machine and be safe(r)!

OK guys, I assume it would be safe to restore the file from the chest. I would like to use it, you see.

Thanks!
