False positive on MapleStory.exe!
« on: August 24, 2005, 04:08:12 PM »
Beside putting it in Exclusion, is there any way this MapleStory.exe will not be scanned as trojan horse?

First, there are actually two exclusion lists: one in program settings, affecting the on-demand scanners, and another one in Standard Shield settings, affecting Standard Shield (i.e. on-access protection) only.
Second, it's necessary to put the complete mask to the exlucions, i.e. something like
c:\program files\perfect keylogger lite\*
or just *\bsdhooks.dll

Hooray, VPS 534-3 08/25/05 fixed this false positive!
MapleStory.exe is no longer scanned as infested by Win32.Pakes-Q trojan horse.
