Trying to check Hash of file's hoping somebody can verify if I'm doing it correctly.
Checked URL AvG emailed on VirusTotal:
http:// files-download .avg .com inst/mp/AVG_Antivirus_745.exe
Checked Hash of downloaded file: SHA-256 4C74755AEB5D21B6048F580D149DD56DA2346E171E453481F24AF34CAB959445 <they match>
Then checked downloaded file analysis:
Looked at Behavioral Information
Saw it failed a few dll's.
Was sure if it was safe to install.
So went to main AVG site.
Ended up here & checked URL on VirusTotal:
http:// www. avg. com us-en/download -avg-antivirus-protection -free-698
Checked Hash of downloaded file: SHA-256 B857F7C77EE3505E86808211794B97C61044B7BFDE03E869A77E43E328255037 <they match>:
Then I checked downloaded file analysis:
The relationships tab led to this:
This doesn't seem right. AVG flagged it's own file. LOL
I get matching numbers so I think I'm checking the Hash's correctly?
But that brings up my next questions...
Are all those detection's false positive?
Is either of these files safe to use?
