Hi All,

 

PTPDrive

 

   http://www.ptpdrive.com/download.html

 

get tagged as being infected by some at Virus Total.

 

https://www.virustotal.com/en/file/03e0012bae78e1512b3c6dbc4a1b27a13c75c66bf1febbdbe817212a19c778bb/analysis/1439590163/

 

Are these false positives?

 

Many thanks,

-T

Hi there,

4 of the detections are generic heuristic detections and one is for detection of packed files (Agnitum's detection). I don't know why CMC would detect the file as Sality, but if it was Sality then other AV engines would have picked up on it.

I'd say these are FPs.

One more thing... Just tried installing it on my own system, nothing looks out of place.
