Hello,

After running for the first time Kaspersky Security Scan on a fresh windows 8.1 install, it found 6 trojans in the module folder of my ESET Antivirus protection.. I did also run TDSS Killer prior to that scan and it found a medium risk infection in the AMD Fuel folder. I am quite surprised by this, as I run everything up to date and do not visit shady websites.I will attach a FRST log, the log from TDSS and a KSS screenshot.

Are those false positives or is the system really infected?

Thank you for your help in advance!

Here are the complete paths for the 6 files that KSS showed as infected:

HEUR:Trojan.Win32.Prikormka.gen
C:\Program Files\ESET\ESET Smart Security Premium\Modules\em002_64\31454\em002_64.dll

HEUR:Trojan.Win32.Prikormka.gen
C:\Program Files\ESET\ESET Smart Security Premium\Modules\em002_64\31454\em002_64.dll.raw

HEUR:Trojan.Win32.Prikormka.gen
C:\Program Files\ESET\ESET Smart Security Premium\Modules\em002_64\31464\em002_64.dll

HEUR:Trojan.Win32.Prikormka.gen
C:\Program Files\ESET\ESET Smart Security Premium\Modules\em002_64\31464\em002_64.dll.raw

HEUR:Trojan.Win32.Prikormka.gen
C:\Program Files\ESET\ESET Smart Security Premium\Modules\em002_64\31466\em002_64.dll

HEUR:Trojan.Win32.Prikormka.gen
C:\Program Files\ESET\ESET Smart Security Premium\Modules\em002_64\31466\em002_64.dll.raw


In the meantime I did full scans with Eset Online Scanner, Malwarebytes, Emsisoft Emergency Kit and Hitmanpro. Nothing was detected by any of those programs.


Is it now safe to assume that those were indeed false posotives from Kaspersky Security Scan?



I should also mention that I enabled the in depth scan function for that KSS scan. Prior to that scan I did one without in depth scanning and it found nothing.

I wouldnt be to concerned about it. Its quite possible to have false positives with these scans. In fact if you searched TDSSkiller and AMD or the other one in your favorite search engine you would most likely get some hits.
