Hijackthis Installer Flagged As Fp?

Recommended Posts

HI,

 

I had not utilized this marvelous AV for some time, but just re-installed it. During the scan it reported as malware and quarantined "HiJackThis.msi".

 

As far as I know this is the installer for HijackThis. I had it restored.

 

If I was mistaken, and this would not be a false positive, I would like to know, if possible. Otherwise I'll trust it was just my HijackThis installer. :)

Hi Lode,

I had the same problem with HighJackThis.msi, that was as per Orlando a False Positive! See this thread (4 posts only!):

"A28C4D.msi (= Hijackthis.msi) Malware or False Positive?"

PS. You do not have to send an email to support@samples.immunet.com with the file in zip-format attached, because I have already done it. It is a little bit strange, that you have HiJackThis.msi reported as a malware, because the Immunet Cloud should has got this info long time ago! DS

You're welcome and thank you.

 

Now that we're at it, Avira reported this:

 

Virus or unwanted program 'TR/Crypt.XPACK.Gen [trojan]'

detected in file 'C:\Program Files\Immunet\clamav\temp\clamtmp\clamav-ba17ba05d6e6a060c66a8d1f2d0a08b4.

 

 

I guess for this I have to go to Avira... which I will do right now.
