Win32:Spyklog-D
« on: August 03, 2005, 06:40:46 PM »
Running Avast Home latest ver. After last update, program found Win32:Spyklog-D in C:\Program Files\Webroot\Washer\Languages\English.dll. This is a Window Washer file that has not changed since installed in March. I had to add this file to the Standard Shield On-Access exclusions in order to run the program. This is definitely a false positive. I ran a Google, Yahoo, and Teoma search for this virus/trojan, and got absolutely no hits. A search on Avast's web site also yielded no return for this. Anyone have a clue what this is?

Thanks,
Rod

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.

You could also check the offending/suspect file at: Jotti - Multi engine on-line virus scanner if any other scanners here detect them it is less likely to be a false positive. You can't do this with the file in the chest, you will need to move it out.

I'm sure the last version of English.dll from Window Washer (6.0.5.409) is not detected as a virus by the last avast! version (4.6.691 and VPS 0531-2). At least, it was tested in a computer of a friend of mine that give me the details  8)

Sorry for multiple posts,

I updated Window Washer to ver 6.0.5.409, and as stated above, Avast shows no virus. Must be only in earlier bulid.

Thanks for replies,
Rod
