Virus Found in CCSETUP.214.ex

Recommended Posts

I went to CCleaner homepage to DL new version.. was directed to filehippo for the download..Downloaded from filehipp and my virus program picked up a "w/32/downldr2.exab" virus in the "CCSETUP.214.ex" file. The virus program I was using was AT&T

How can this be.. where can I get a clean update

 

thanks, Ken

????? AT&T is a Virus Checker ???

 

It's a False Postive, CCleaner does some Virus like things so is considered by a few overly egar AVs as one.

 

Try the no install version at http://www.CCleaner.com/download/builds

Neither Avast Antivirus nor SUPERAntiSpyware find anything wrong with the download from FileHippo.com.

 

You'll need to tell use what antivirus software you're using, this info is needed if Piriform puts a false positive warning on the main CCleaner page. In the meantime you can also check for an update to your antivirus software signature files.

 

This is the typical false positive that comes up countless times. You can of course always verify against your installed antivirus software using free online virus scanning services that scan files with multiple anti-malware applications:

* http://virusscan.jotti.org/ - Result: Found nothing

* http://virscan.org/ - Result: Found nothing

* http://www.virustotal.com/ - Result: Found 1 by Panda, who constantly gives false positives

Help

 

I have had a similar experience. My virus system (PCGuard) indicates the download as a virus W32/downldr2.EXAB. I have saved to a file and run the virus checker and no virus is deiected. however it will not allow the as 'CCSETUP214.exe is not a valid Win32 application'. How can I download the latest version of CCleaner.

If you have a corrupted download you'd need to do this:

1. Clear your browser cache, the old version of CCleaner you have installed can do that.

2. Visit this page and download the build of your choice.

Yes, Its called AT&T Internet Security Suite. (Provided by RadialPoint in Montreal)

 

I also use it and it tagged the same file on my system as containing a virus. I went back to the previous version of CCleaner.

My anti-virus software also reported a virus in CCleaner v 2,14. It is Authentium ESP Security Suite. It's not the first time I've had this problem with a CCleaner download.

 

This time I took your advice and downloaded the no-install version. It worked fine. I checked it with my virus killer and it didn't detect a virus.

 

So, problem solved, thanks.
