Erroneus virus report
« on: August 02, 2004, 08:53:09 PM »
Hello, people.
I've got a boring issue with avast antivirus 4 professional.
There's a program called Teamspeak (www.teamspeak.org) that I use to talk with my clan mates when I play Counter Strike. Well, since a little time until now it's been saying that keypress.dll is a trojan... of course it's an error because it's never recognized it as a virus until today.
This is the full log about the alarm:
02/08/2004 20.47.14   NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM   1464   Sign of "Win32:Trojan-gen. {Other}" has been found in "C:\PROGRAMMI\TEAMSPEAK2_RC2\KEYPRESS.DLL" file.  

How can I fix it and just let Avast ignore it?

There is Teamspeak and Teamspeak2, first one is a legitimate application, second one is a trojan. Which one do you use?

Heh, I got the same virus notifation upon this morning's bootup....this time with the /mirc6.03/mirc.exe file.  ???

The siren sounded cool though....scared the heck out of me  ;D

Donno if this is a false alarm though....never had any problems with this file before.

Looking at the error Deviad posted, I'd say he has the Teamspeak2 trojan.    :(  

So, it looks like this is not an bad alarm that he got.    :(

DScans,

mirc 6.16 is the latest. Earlier version had exploits. Upgrade, you can be infected with a irc trojan.

This thread talks about potential increase in False Positive - Trojan-gen detections

This thread is also similar to your experience http://forum.avast.com/index.php?board=2;action=display;threadid=6359

Aside from this, keeping your irc software up to date is important as vulnerabilities are identified and software patched.
