ils.dll => false positive?
« on: December 15, 2008, 12:03:09 PM »
Hi

I just got a warning from avast, it detected a rootkit in the ils.dll file in the windows\system32 folder. (Windows XP SP3)
This happened on 2 of my computers at almost the same time.
This makes me think that this is a false positive?

I got the same warning.
Could somebody confirms this is an FP or not?

Thx.

I just received a VPS database update and scanned ils.dll and did not get an alert.

today dec. 15th, I've received a warning from AVAST about the c:\windows\system32\ils.dll. here 2 computers using XP got this warning..

I guess a false positive warning...

I suggest you guys send a mail to avast tem, they can give us an answer...

Yup, same warning here.  Think I'll cancel the full scan running on that system and get to work, and hope for
"official" notice this is a fp.

I also received the same message...
Avast! popped up saying it had found a suspicious file, and that it was detected using heuristic methods. It was actually quite scary for me, as I go to great lengths to keep my computer safe from malware, and I don't think malware has ever actually been found on my computer in over a year lol.

I'm just going to assume that this is a false positive for now.

Precisely the same thing here too, Avast says it detected ils.dll as a rootkit using a heuristic method.

Trend micro rootkit finder says nothing, and the boot time scan also finds nothing, so im guessing false positive.

I'm getting the same thing.  Virus Total says ils.dll is clean.  Looking at the file's "properties", it looks like it's part of Microsoft's NetMeeting software.

Same here when I started up the computer a few hours ago.
Rebooted computer and scanned. No viruses found.
