Trojan.Dropper

Recommended Posts

I am currently running version 4.0.1154 of SAS and have just started receiving reports of an infection on my machine.

On bootup SAS generates a report saying that it has detected, and blocked, Trojan.dropper/svchost.exe-fake.process. After then performing a full system scan the log file shows that a file has been found which I quarantined.

On rebooting the machine, the original report returned suggesting that the infection remains.

Is this a false positive or do I have some form of trojan that, whilst able to detect, SAS cannot remove permanently?[/img]

I'm new to SAS .. what do you mean by 'the sample'? Do you mean the .exe file referred to in the report or something else?
