Hitman Pro 3.5 FP
« on: December 14, 2010, 11:41:14 PM »
Hi all,

I have hitman pro installed on my machine as well as avast 5.0.677.

Today I was doing a scan with hitman pro and avast issued an alert that said a rootkit was found and pointed out hitman pro's driver as a hidden system driver.

The driver is located at C:\Windows\system32\drivers\hitmanpro35.sys

Hitman pro can be found for download at surfright.nl

This happened on 32 bit Windows 7 ultimate.
OS: Windows 8.1 Pro x64.  Antivirus: Avast! Free
Broswer: Chrome Beta  w/ AdBlockPlus, LastPass, and WOT.
On demand scanners: MBAM, SAS, Spybot, and HitmanPro.
Other: EMET

Maybe I shouldn't have used the words False Positive to describe this.

The Avast engine does not detect this file as malicious.  There is nothing in the chest to send.  Sending in the file to virustotal does not show a detection by any antivirus.

When I scan the file with Avast, it doesn't detect anything.  This was a behavioral false positive.

It was not the normal notification that shows up when avast has a detection.  Instead, it was an alert in the center of the screen that said rootkit detected.  I should have taken a screen shot.
