« on: July 13, 2005, 05:03:05 PM »
Just sent this sample to avast! With Jotti only avast! reports infection.

You do not need to reply! It's just for information purposes!  ;D

Strange, I thought that FreshDownload was a clean application...
Are you sure this is not a false positive? Any download manager is being detected as infected nowadays...  :-\ :'( :-[

I'm sure it's false positive! This virus info was added in latest VPS. Jotti all scanners except avast says the file is clean. Hope the false positive will be repaired soon as I can't use my Fresh Download in all functionality. Thought about excluding file, but I'll wait for new VPS.
