[RESOLVED]Svchost.exe..ohh! no virustotal results FP?
« on: January 21, 2012, 04:19:33 PM »
this is my system svchost.exe

its from:

c:\windows\system32\svchost.exe

is this a FP on virustotal?
https://www.virustotal.com/file/121118a0f5e0e8c933efd28c9901e54e42792619a8a3a6d11e1f0025a7324bc2/analysis/1327158269/

I investigated with comodo kill switch and found that this the only svchost running on my clean win7...

Whats the big deal with esafe?

Interesting to read all the comments.

You can send a sample to virus [at] avast [dot] com for analysis.

You can also try uploading it to Comodo's Instant Malware Analyzer http://camas.comodo.com To see what it does.

Comodo online file analyzer says its a not a excutable file....when i put it from my comodo defence+ for online lookup it says the file is safe...


comodo kill switch also tells me this is the only svchost on my win7 and it is legitimate...

I have asked essexboy to take a look at the Vt report and this topic...lets see what he has to say....

probably this thing has even been reported at comodo forums...google search revealed it....that has been done a long while ago so they have found the file to be clean and legit.

i saw even many people on the forums have also reported it to avast! and the file hasnt been reported as malware...it is clean and legit even according to threat expert..

according to kill switch my svchost is connecting to the dhcp and event log....and to the windows update service...remote address for my svchost doesnt exist phew! ;)
