False Positive in WD My Book USB hard drive....
« on: September 07, 2008, 05:14:52 AM »
I purchased the above mentioned hard drive, and after plugging it in to my system, avast said it found "Win32:trojan-gen" in a file preloaded in the hard drive

The file is  wd_windows_tools.  The jstart.exe file in that set of programs.  I have found on another site that it was also flagged by Symantec.  They later fixed it in their updates.

Thank you

Thx for attention. I found the file jstart.exe on my WD hard drive and it's falsely detected. False positive alert will be fixed in next VPS update 080907-0
