Win32:Doomber-C [Wrm]
« on: January 14, 2006, 03:38:29 AM »
About a week ago I downloaded PsTools 2.24 from the Sysinternals website:

http://www.sysinternals.com/index.html

The latest avast! A-V update [0602-3, 13/01/06] reports Win32:Doomber-C [Wrm], which it calls a Virus/Worm, as being present in psinfo.exe, which is a component of PsTools 2.24.

Prior to the 0602-3, 13/01/06 update, avast! did not detect this "virus/worm" and nor do any other scanning programs I use - Ad-Aware, Spybot, MSASW, ewido, Webroot Spy Sweeper, all with latest definitions.

It seems highly unlikely a program from a site of the eminence and standing of Sysinternals would contain a virus/worm.

Is this detection a false positive?

Any information regarding this matter would be appreciated.

Most probably. To know if a file is a false positive, please submit it to JOTTI and let us know the result. If it is indeed a false positive, send it in a password protected zip to virus (at) avast.com
Please, mention in the body of the message why you think it is a false positive and the password used.  ;)

VirusTotal is a free service offered by Hispasec Sistemas. There are no guarantees about the availability and continuity of this service. Although the detection rate afforded by the use of multiple antivirus engines is far superior to that offered by just one product, these results DO NOT guarantee the harmlessness of a file. Currently, there is not any solution that offers a 100% effectiveness rate for detecting viruses and malware.
