Another large set of Trojan-gen detection released today
« on: October 19, 2004, 07:06:50 PM »
Hi All,

as usual, after some period of time another large bunch of Trojan-gen detections has been added to the latest iAVS. Although I do not expect large amount of false positives, this unfortunately might happen. If you find such file and you think this could be the false positive, please send it to the usual address: virus AT avast.com. Thanks for cooperation  ;)  !

We're aware of this one - there's no need to e-mail it.
It'll be fixed soon!

Also getting a warning on RejZor's PowerDefragmenter.exe file as well. I assume that you don't need that emailed ???

I did try to confirm using Jotti but it would appear that it is down as it was not found at http://www.virusscan.jotti.dhs.org

I had it backed up on a CD. Here is my report
