Virus Total showing trojan in installation file

Post by Grif595 » Sun Apr 14, 2019 10:42 am

Hi
wondering if anyone might know what the deal is, every av is showing it clear apart from one I've never heard of. Still putting me off though.

If you're downloading it from this website, you can be sure it's a false positive.

If you have any doubts, you should submit the file you downloaded to your favorite AV vendor for them to review.

Some AV vendors will flag files for certain characteristics - these "heuristic" scanners are generally set to generate false positives, in order to avoid giving a false negative response. Don't know? FLAG!
