Hi Andy Isf?nu?i and Orpheus75,


@Andy Isf?nu?i , please check whether the false positive repeats.


@Orpheus75, please send us the following information so that we can check whether it is a false positive:


1. Make sure you update it to the latest definitions version.


2. After the scan, please click the "Save Report" button on the bottom left and send us the report


3. Zip the suspicious file with password "infected", upload it to http://www.wikisend.com and then give us the download link


We are looking forward to your reply.

Hi Andy Isf?nu?i,


Sorry for my late reply as I did not see your post timely.:oops:


If the false positive continues, could you please send us VT link and the reported file again as you did in your first post. ( Sorry the links you sent before have expired. My mistakes)


Looking forward to hearing from you. :-)
