false +ve about Trojano?
« on: June 09, 2004, 02:25:46 PM »
G'day folks,
Firstly - thanks for an excellent product.
Second - My avast! 4 seems to be reporting a long installed file as infected when another product, Grisoft AVG, reports it as clean.

Virus name:     Win32:Trojano-140 [Trj]
File name:       c:\Program Files\TMR\updater.exe
VPS version:    0424-1, 08/06/2004
Build:             Apr2004 (4.1.396)

The file involved is the updater part of Phatsoft's TMR (a reminder program, http://www.phatsoft.net).  It has been installed since November 03.

I've also scanned it with CWShredder and SwatIt.  They didn't report problems.  How do I prove/disprove this as a false positive?

Regards
Ken

I recommend that you send the sample with some description to virus@asw.cz. Its most probably a FP,but Alwil analysts will check it anyway to be sure :)

After this morning's VPS update to 0424-2 the problem's gone away.

Thanks guys
