udpflood.exe detected as Win32:Trojan-gen.{VC} ???
« on: February 11, 2004, 06:38:08 AM »
Hi,

I am a Security Engineer and in my vulnerability testing toolkit I have the udpflood.exe utility created by Foundstone.

I just starting using Avast! tonight (longtime Norton AV user) and during my first scan it detected that udpflood.exe has Win32:Trojan-gen. {VC}.   Is this a false positive perhaps?  I downloaded this file direct from Foundstone recently so I very much doubt it is infected...

Thoughts?  

Thanks,

TigeMac

Interesting...just downloaded a fresh copy from Foundstone and when I extracted it I got the same warning...

I definitely think this is a false positive....If someone else wants to try it:
