safety of sasdefinitions.exe file questioned by Norton

Recommended Posts

I just ran Norton's Power Eraser which scans for rootkit infections.

 

sasdefinitions.exe was listed as a threat.  When I inquired further, it was labeled as bad.  Is this your file?

 

I was wondering since this was a rootkit scan, are there any variants of your file that are positioned in other places to cause harm.

 

Are you aware of any?  

 

I just could not imagine Norton labeling any file bad just because it belonged to a competitor.....or would they?

stjohn,

 

Nortons Power Eraser should not be trusted, it aleays finds perfectly legit programs as bad including some browsers.

 

It is too sensitive to anything that is not in its file category of safe programs, it is likely that is a False Positive.

 

Seems like Norton are going backwards yet again.
