How to report False Positive to us?


Recommended Posts

Hijack.DisplayProperties, Registry Data, HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer Value=NoActiveDesktopChanges, 6-56

 

hi friends,

 

here is a reference of solving the problem above: If you are running Vista then this is a false positive and should be added to the Ignore List.

 

Even in XP this detection isn't actually malware, it's a setting that is often modified by malware to prevent changing the desktop settings.

 

If you've removed it, then just restore it from quarantine and the next time you scan, just add it to the ignore list.

 

BTW, if someone can not find it from quarantine any more, donot worry, you can navigate to here (u'd better somewhat comfortable with the registry):

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer\NoActiveDesktopChanges

change it back to 1 instead of 0.

 

cheers

I wanted to remove the notification area from my desktop but after following the steps below and run iobit securit 360 smart scan i might receive false positive report...

 

here it is:

 

How to Remove The Notification Area In Windows XP Pro

 

1.Click on the START button in your task bar and select RUN from the menu.

 

2.Type “gpedit.msc” (for General Policy Editor) in the box for the file name and click “Okay”. Note: do not type the quotation marks.

 

3.Once the General Policy Editor file has loaded, click to expand the “Administrative Template”, and then click to select the Start menu and Task bar.

 

4.From the options on the screen, locate and click to select the “Hide the Notification Area”. Right-click it and select “Properties”.

 

5.In the Properties option window, click “Enable” and then click “Okay” to save your changes. The next time you log onto your machine, the Notification Area will be gone.

 

This is the report after following that steps and scan my computer with oibit.

False positive: TheWorld Browser.

 

LS,

 

Since when a legitimate browser that I'm already using for a long time seems to be malware???

This browser, called TheWorld browser is already promoted and praised as a valuable, faster and safer alternative for Internet Explorer by ZDNet, CNet and more. Better protection, more options, more user-friendly. It uses the same render-engine of Internet Explorer but improved it by adding its own features.

 

Never experienced complaints about it, also no other well-known antivirus or antimalware scanner has discovered any harm in it.

 

Just to let you know that I have my sincere doubts about considering this IE-alternative as malware. It's rather a false positive imho. Please consider further research in order to make sure it's a 100 percent safe application. I've downloaded it from their official website. McAfee SiteAdvisor is also not aware of any complaints.

 

Greetings,

 

M.

Another (known) false positive! SpywareBlaster.

 

Lectori salutem,

 

 

Following logfile in Dutch, hope you understand the translations of your own software, however, the Dutch translation of Security 360 v1.0 is far from perfect, it's in fact full of wrong spelling and grammar as well...

Hijack.Homepage, Registry Data, HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Control Panel Value=Homepage, 6-238

 

----------------------------------

 

This is without a doubt a false positive, but other antimalware scanners often make the same mistake. Just take a look at the screenshot attached and you will know what I mean....

 

I locked the homepage of Internet Explorer (or should I say Internet Exploder, for I prefer Mozilla Firefox above all other inferior, unsafe browsers) intentionally with a legitimate and trusted tool called SpywareBlaster to PREVENT malicious attacks from changing my homepage! There are more scanners that confuse this prevention measure in order to safeguard my browser settings with a "hijack". I wonder why...

 

Any ideas how Iobit could avoid confusing an intentionally protection with a hijack in future releases or (minor) updates? If you are the ones who pretend to have developed a security tool that's much better than all other scanners, then it's pitiful that Security 360 makes the very same mistake as all others, which is imho a potential proof that there is still a lot of work to be done to make this software more worthwhile in the future, just as ASC3 Pro had several nasty flaws in its first releases, but in the meantime after several upgrades and bugfixes they are solved at last.

 

I had my complaints about ASC3 Pro in the past, but thanks to the many bugfixes I'm nowadays quite satisfied.

 

But to stay on-topic: proof of the false positive that I am reporting now = screenshot (file-attach).

 

Grtz,

 

M.

Hi MagisterNoctis,

 

First of all, I do use SpywareBlaster together with IS 360 and others.

 

Think about a malware that changes the Home Page and locks it. A computer rookie will not know that, and the result is that the home page is hijacked!!!

 

IS 360 is warning that the Home Page is locked by a software, without accusing SpywareBlaster.

 

Since a user would know that the Home Page is willingly locked (There are many other softwares that doing the same thing.), and easily this warning can be ignored and the item can be moved to the Ignore List.

 

In summary, I don't think that IObit is going to change that behaviour exactly like the other security software which will not change, because Home Page is one of the first targets for hijacking.

 

Cheers.

Hi sam,

 

Best thing to do is to upload the files to VirusTotal you think that are false positives, and post the result links here.

 

Cheers.

 

Hi enoskype,

 

Here's the result link of "eac-0.99pb4.exe" from VirusTotal

Avira Warning On New Iobit 360 Version

 

As I have a great deal of respect for both Iobit and Avira, I'm somewhat bemused to be encountering today's curious situation, viz:

 

1) In response to Iobit's notification of a new version of 360, I've downloaded this from the Iobit re-directed downloads website;

 

2) I've attempted to install the new version but Avira has interrupted the install with this warning:

 

"C:\ProgramFiles\Iobit Security 360\IS360Init.exe

is the TR/Dropper Gen2 Trojan."

 

3) I've asked Avira for more information. It reports that it hasn't any;

 

4) I've checked with Kaspersky's database and it reports no record of any malware called TR/Dropper Gen2.

 

So I seem to be in the bizarre situation of receiving from iObit an anti-malware app which Avira claims has a malware infestation but which Avira itself seems wholly unable to state just what that malware actually is.

 

Result: I've cancelled the new 360 installation though as a precaution, have not checked any of the Avira options re delete/quarantine etc lest Avira do more harm than good.

 

Advice welcome as to what to do next. Thanks! :???:
