Hi all,

 

Today I was uploading an attachment to send it to a friend of mine via gmail. The attachment was of .xap extension because the file is a mobile application for windows phone and a virus was detected according to gmail. I scanned the file with Avira and nothing was detected. I also tried to upload the same application's dll and it also shown that a virus was detected but nothing was detected by my Avira Antivirus.

 

How can I be sure that I'm not infected?

 

Any help will be much appreciated.

 

Thanks!

(A xap file does contain executables.....this is the reason you are receiving a 'no go' from Google
 
 
Try sending it via DROPBOX   or maybe FILEDROP   ....there are plenty of others available of a similar nature

Yes I know that but other executables that I did just won't let me send them, this one it says that a virus is detected.

Right click on the file in question and scan it individually with Malwarebytes and also with whatever your AV is.

 

Upload it to VirusTotal  HERE  and scan it there.

Scanned it with VirusTotal and the only detection was by F-Prot --> W32/CVE130074.B.gen!Eldorado

 

I scanned it with my own antivirus Avira and nothing as detected.

Run the tool by double-clicking it.

If you are using Windows Vista, 7, or 8; instead of double-clicking, right-mouse click JRT.exe and select Run as Administrator.

The tool will open and start scanning your system.

Please be patient as this can take a while to complete depending on your system's specifications.

On completion, a log (JRT.txt) is saved to your desktop and will automatically open.
