|Is this a problem for more crunchers than [TA]Spacehead and me?|
[Q]from a thread @ anandtech-forums (look here: http://forums.anandtech.com/messageview.aspx?catid=39&threadid=2011592&enterthread=y): "I was going to run the benchmark on this 2nd comp. When i moved it over from my main comp, Avast alerted me, saying it contained a trojan (Win32:Qukart-Z) & i quarentined it.
I've run AV scans on both comps(AntiVir on my main one, Avast on the other) & Spybot on both so far.
I downloaded the benchmark directly from the DPAD site. I'm hoping it just a false positive. I know in the past Avast has given me a false positive with a F@H file." [/Q]
I have tried to download the current muon1bench.exe to several of my computers. At all instances it triggers the same warning for the virus Win32:Qukart-Z. I am using Avast Antivirus, Home edition version 4.7, build Jan2007 4.7.942 with the virus data base 2007-02-23, version 000716-3.
Avast has never before alerted me withaout cause (I get some 2 - 3 alerts/week).
I have an old version of Muon1bench.exe, that version is 8 kilobytes smaller. Version difference or virus infection? I do not know.
Any comments? Triggering other virus scanners?
|It's nothing specific to you, I'm getting this also. Seems to be a false positive.|
|I seem to remember something about this from years ago (like 2003!). Someone contacted me via IM.|
I've just recompiled and uploaded the program, see if it (a) works and (b) doesn't provoke a virus warning...
|Good god this is an old problem then!, didn't anyone report it to Avast??|
