(SOLVED) Reporting false positives ?

Recommended Posts

scbs29   

I have just scanned my system with Comodo, MalwareBytes and SAS.

Comodo and MalwareBytes gave a clean bill of health.

SAS reported

Adware.AddLyrics/Variant
    C:\PROGRAM FILES (X86)\DEXPOT\UNINSTALL.EXE
    C:\USERS\......\APPDATA\ROAMING\MICROSOFT\WINDOWS\START MENU\PROGRAMS\DEXPOT\DEXPOT UNINSTALL.LNK
    C:\PROGRAM FILES\WINPCAP\UNINSTALL.EXE
    C:\PROGRAM FILES (X86)\FREEMAKE\CAPTURELIB\WINPCAP.EXE

 

I submitted these files to virustotal and both were clean. According to virustotal whese files were tested with SAS and found clean.

 

I use SAS v6.0.1130.  After the scan the 'built-in false positive reporter at the end of the scan' was not shown. Is this still available in this version?

I have not found anything in SAS that mentions this.

I scanned the installer I got from the direct download site for FotoSketcher 2.96 with avast!, MBAM and SAS on my x86 Vista laptop and it was clean. SAS flagged it has having a PUP on my x64 Win 7 desktop. MSE flagged it as clean. I also ran an MBAM scan which was also clean. When I copied the x86 installer, previously SAS had claimed clean on my Vista computer to my Win 7 machine SAS flagged it as having a PUP!

 

I'm guessing this is also a false positive.

Daveski17,

 

 

Sorry for the inconvenience caused.

 

We have published an update to our definitions, version 11505.  These files should no longer be detected by our scanner.

OK, thanks. I've just scanned it and it comes up clean now.
