yelloweye,

 

If you don't want to accept the advice that this is a false positive, you can:

 

Contact F-Secure yourself and get their advice.

 

- or -

 

Wait and try to install CCleaner next week. In the meantime F-Secure will probably fix their problem.

 

- or -

 

Go away.

I have been a user of ccleaner for many years, and now use it in a secure work environment where everything has to pass through many scanners, and an install watcher to check for any back doors.

 

I am happy to say that the slim package we use is 100% free of vermin, back doors, and animals that pose as horses.

Hi All

 

Well... I don't like "flames" when it?s about false/positives :o

 

Users in Sweden reported exactly the same.

 

The file involved is InstallOptions.dll, this file is created during setup in a

temporarily folder.

 

From F-Secures logfile:

 

Win32.Trojandownloader.Zlob (Malware)

 

FILE:C:\DOCUME~1\GRAN~1\LOKALA~1\Temp\nsh216.tmp\InstallOptions.dll

 

 

I have scanned this file yesterday evening with Virustotal and also today with F-Secures scanner

without any alarm.

 

This must be challenge for F-Secure to solve.

 

regards

plun

F-Secure behaviour confirmed; when I tried to install the latest CCleaner I got that warning. After a little wondering I disabled the anti-virus software first after having checked the installer package with no reaction. Then after CCleaner install I checked the system with no reaction, so it's the first time I got a false positive with F-Secure. But what have you changed to mislead F-Secure - or perhaps F-Secure definitions have changed to give that false positive. I have had CCleaner installed perhaps 2 years as well as F-Secure but it's the first time I got that warning. And I regard both softwares as highly recommended!

I have sent another email to f-secure with a link to this thread.

 

 

Hi hazelnut

 

This is probably a better entrance for a f/P trouble and also for all F-Secure users with this "challenge".

 

http://support.f-secure.com/enu/home/virusproblem/sample/

 

Undetected viruses

If you have a virus sample that is not detected or it causes a false alarm with F-Secure Virus Protection, please submit a sample of such file to F-Secure.

 

Direct:

http://support.f-secure.com/enu/home/virus...ex_sample.shtml

 

F-Secure operates one office in Helsinki and also one in Malaysia, Kuala Lumpur so someone

is for sure awake... :)

This has gotten out of hand. The level of respect that is usually kept on this forum is nowhere to be found in this topic. <_<

 

The bottom line is that the only problem is a false positive detection from fsecure. All that will have to be done is MrG will have to contact F-Secure and have them correct their detections.

 

This topic will be locked and an update will be posted in the future when this issue has been resolved.

F-Secure have responded with the following email:

 

We have verified the claim and isolated the cause of the false alarm.

We are already fixing the problem and will release an update as soon as

possible.

 

Thank you for bringing this to our attention.
