Have you used smitfraudfix or any other specialized fix tool recently.
Smitfraudfix is a tool to detect and remove smitfraud infections. However, certain files that are part of the tool, such as process.exe
, may at times be detected by some anti-virus/anti-malware scanners as a "RiskTool
", "Hacking tool
", "Potentially unwanted tool
", or even "malware (virus/trojan)
" when that is not the case.
Such programs have legitimate uses in contexts where an authorized user or administrator has knowingly installed it. These detections do not necessarily mean the file is malware or a bad program. It means it has the potential
for being misused by others. Anti-virus scanners cannot distinguish between "good" and "malicious" use of such programs, therefore they may alert you or even automatically remove
them. In these cases the detection is a "False Positive
". Smitfraudfix is not a virus or malware. Either have your anti-virus ignore this detection or delete the file.
