False Positive
« on: November 27, 2018, 01:41:28 pm »
Hello and Good Morning...
I recently installed a new antivirus called IMMUNET, believe its new from Cisco Systems..
I ran a check this morning with Rogue Killer and there was a hit for the following. 

Process: [Test.EICAR (Malicious)] sfc.exe (3860) -- (Cisco Systems, Inc.) C:\Program Files\Immunet\6.2.0\sfc.exe -> Found

I do know EICARis a test file, however, id like a second opinion..Thank You.   Michael   

I attached the text file also...for your perusal...

Hi Michael,

Thanks for your feedback.
Could you please zip the file detected as EICAR (sfc.exe) and attach the archive with your next reply ?

Regards.

Hi Michael,

You zipped RogueKiller's report, not the file triggering the detection :
Quote
C:\Program Files\Immunet\6.2.0\sfc.exe

Could you please do it again ?

Regards.

Hi Michael,

That's the right one.
This is a confirmed false positive. We will whitelist it as soon as possible.

Thanks again for your feedback.

Hi Michael,

A [VT.Unknown] detection means the file is unknown on VirusTotal. Itís probably because itís quite new and hasnít been uploaded yet. Simply accept the upload when asked. Once scanned , RogueKiller shouldnít detect the file anymore, unless itís malicious.

Regards.
