Glary Utilities' RTL70.BPL tagged as a trojan (FP?)
« on: December 03, 2009, 05:50:26 PM »
Well I've been using Avast! and Glary Utilities for several weeks now but all of a sudden Avast! IDs its rtl70.bpl as a trojan.

This is a false positive right? GUtilities has been reviewed by reputable sites such as PC World and PCMag.com.

You don't say what the malware name is ?

If you haven't noticed there was a large false positive on one of the signatures. That FP was corrected quickly by VPS version 091203-1, so ensure you have the latest VPS and scan again in the chest if you put it there.

Glary Utilities is a well known and safe program. Its most likely a false positive fixed via the latest update (as DavidR pointed out). If you still get the warning after updating, make sure you have a legit copy from the vendors website.

Thank you both for the quick response. I updated right after the Avast! tagged it, very positive that it's an FP.

I scanned it in the chest as per your instructions. Here's the result:

Scanning of selected files

Scan files in the temporary folder: C:\DOCUME~1\User\LOCALS~1\Temp\_avast4_\unp87765400.tmp
C:\DOCUME~1\User\LOCALS~1\Temp\_avast4_\unp87765400.tmp\4.bpl  -- no virus --

So it's safe right? "No virus." Forgive the OC question but I tend to 3x check when it comes to security issues.

As long as you downloaded from their website, or somewhere else you trust. It should be fine.  :)

Cheers!
