Microsoft.NET\Framework\v3.0\Windows Communication Foundation\Infocard.exe

Recommended Posts

I have received repeatedly trojan identification message (threath level 5) during the WinXP logins with Superantispyware ver.4.33.1000, definition db ver. Core: 4564, trace 2376. I run a lifetime subscription of the app.

The identified "trojan" is the .NET 3.0 framework file Infocard.exe (Microsoft.NET\Framework\v3.0\Windows Communication Foundation\Infocard.exe)

With quick net search there are various articles with variable descriptions, MS own tech site references quide to uninstallation programs for the different versions of .NET framework and some articles instruct to disable the "Windows Cardspace" service from running.

As I have understood, the file should be "safe" (as "safe" as any Microsoft service dealing with electronic identities), but I wonder why this Infocard.exe file has not caused the same effect for anyone else in this forum as I could not find references from anyone yet when I searched the topics here? Is this something that is under the Superantispyware developers radar and something is being done with this for future releases as the current version does not give any useful identification information with the block message, only that its a form of Trojan with level 5 threath and link to the .exe file..

I have the sp2 level version of the .NET ver.3.
