Hi,

 

I was doing my weekly full system scan yesterday, using Avast, Malwarebytes and Super Anti-Spyware, when two instances of Trojan.Agent/Gen-Coinminer were found by SAS (but not by Avast or Malwarebytes). This trojan is described as an alias of the Trojan.Lickore.B on the www.spywareremove.com website.

 

The location was in two files of some freeware I downloaded recently, 'Advanced Bat to Exe converter'. I normally scan any downloads with Avast and Malwarebytes before allowing an installation (I do not usually scan with SAS as well). The home website of the freeware, www.battoexeconverter.com/‎ is given a green tick by Avast, and the software is also available through CNET, which certifies it as virus and malware-free.

 

Is this real detection, or a false positive?

 

Cheers

 

Rock

Hi Rock

maybe a false positive

Take a look what the developer/s says about that:
Read the comments
http://4sysops.com/archives/free-bat-to-exe-converter-4-ways-to-convert-a-batch-file-to-an-exe-file/

After that
We can check your comp if you still think that you have a problem.
