Hello

 

I just tried to download the latest version of Combofix and immediately MCafee kicks in and quarantines a Trojan virus. What gives? Is this site safe or what?

Hello

Hi,

that is a false positive. https://www.virustotal.com/de/file/efe3bf96470d8d19038aa1815c123c7f6660acaf3383bfdc90d418e1daa2bca6/analysis/1422103048/

 

However:

ComboFix is a program, created by sUBs, that scans your computer for known malware, and when found, attempts to clean these infections automatically. In addition to being able to remove a large amount of the most common and current malware, ComboFix also displays a report that can be used by trained helpers to remove malware that is not automatically removed by the program.

Please note that running this program without supervision can cause your computer to not operate correctly. Therefore only run this program at the request of an experienced helper.

It appears that this issue is resolved, therefore I am closing the topic. If that is not the case and you need or wish to continue with this topic, please send me or any Moderator a Personal Message (PM) that you would like this topic re-opened.
