An update was made to fix it today.

Hi All,

We're still investigating what happened in the release procedure to cause this false positive issue. The offending definitions have been removed completely from the database.

My sincerest apologies for the false alarm.


I did find the timestamp Odd tho' :scratchhead:

One of my users reported it this morning.
It looks like it was fixed couple of hours later.

I don't remember if it was Avira or Avast but some of their installer made an Outbound attempt to a business company around advertisings and spyware when i checked the IP and googled around. After that i never used their bleepty AV anymore <_< So im only happy that superantispyware removed files :thumbup2:
