If you use MyHarmony from Logitech but haven't opened the application since September 15 (or thereabouts) can you please verify something for me before you open it again? The reason you need to do this before you open MyHarmony is because the file mentioned below will be overwritten with a later version (which doesn't have this problem).


Kaspersky identified the following MyHarmony temp file as containing a virus on my system:




I uploaded "f_000009" to VirusTotal to verify if this is a false-positive and this was the result. Yikes! Interestingly, someone uploaded the file a week before before I did (VirusTotal gives you the date first uploaded) so I'm obviously not the first one to notice this issue.


It will put my mind at ease if someone can upload their copy of f_000009 to VirusTotal to see if they get the same result. I run a very tight ship so this file was almost certainly downloaded from Logitech's servers so despite the many detections it's very likely that this is a false positve.
