Possible False Positive - W32.generic.ethos.

Recommended Posts

I'm developing ASP.NET web application with Visual Studio 2005 SP1 on Windows 7. Starting today, everytime I build the web site, I get a W32.Generic.Ethos warning.

 

I've attached the infected file.

 

I've read from below that, Ethos is something generic. Maybe it is better if you inspect the attached file.

Keep up good work,

Alparsla, the ASP.NET Web application has a zero-day vulnerability. Please click this link to eEye Digital Security web site for more info. ASP.NET Viewstate Padding Information Disclosure I also posted in the General Forum earlier today about zero-day vulnerabilities and some web sites that have some comprehensive lists of affected patched & unpatched software applications.

I just downloaded OpenOffice from CNET, and it's busy installing. The w32.generic.ethos popped up. Is it OpenOffice, or something else?

Try to download from the official site, maybe the virus is probably present. http://www.openoffice.org/

 

I download programs from the official websites, we see together, and if the virus persists will be a FP.

I am looking now but it's likely an FP. It should be sorted out in the next 20 minutes.

When might this FP be fixed? I'm getting it repeatedly on a .Net page that I'm developing on my localhost laptop... It's quite a nuisance having it pop up every time I reload a page I'm testing, to the point that I'll be disabling Immunet soon out of frustration (which I don't want to do).

 

Thank you,

Thom

Sorry, I fixed this earlier and forgot to post back to the board. As Pedersen indicates, it is fixed.
