Probable False Positive(S)

Recommended Posts

During a full scan earlier today, Immunet Protect (without ClamAv) detected and quarantined two files it identified as W32.Trojan.2483. 1 file is A0137867.exe (System volume information\restore), which coincidentially was a false positive during an Avast! scan on Friday. 2nd file is Splitcam.exe. I also did a full scan of my system with Malwarebytes prior to the Immunet scan and it found nothing malicious. No other antivirus program I have had ever identified Splitcam.exe as a threat. Could this be a false positive?

Hi Tonyaz,

Can you, please, follow the main procedure to send an email to support@samples.immunet.com with the files compressed into zip- or 7z-files as attachments. Within 2 hours the Immunet Analysis Team will send a reply to you (US Mountain Time Mon-Fri 9-5). Automatically Immunet will also send the result (malwares or false positives) to the Immunet Cloud.

Cheers,

sweidre

PS. I saw, that one of the two files was stored in a "System Volume Information" folder, which you probably cannot access! Do you have a copy of it somewhere else? Anyhow, please, send what you are able to! DS.
