Could this be a fake? Advanced System Protector


Recommended Posts

I just downloaded ASP again to see if it would find mallware that IS360 may be have missed. It found 3 threats. 1 Cookie and 2 backdoor-trojan. (See attachment).


Both of the tojans were FP.


I send the 'icon' file to VirusTotal and it was clean. http://www.virustotal.com/analisis/fb7ce96dc0dd8d967a6135fdff3cd51fa4064a100f993f5402f2fc19ed3d6123-1271598789


And I definitely know that Steam is not a Trojan..


But the weird thing here is, is when I try to launch both files.

If I open the 'icon' file, then ASP gives me a alert (see attachment). But nothing happens after all.


But if I open steam trough the file that has been known as threat from ASP, then there is no Alert coming up. Steam just opens.


The first thing what I tought about was that this is done for advertisiment.

Hi itsmejjj,


Im Fine and you?


Well as far as I know ASP does have a good reputation on detection rate, but it has a bad reputation on accuracy.


One time I saved a snapshot on my desktop and named the file jjj.jpg It detected it as a threat. I don't know why actually, but I think ASP also searches for threats by name. Which I think is definitely not good. Can cause alot of FP but can on the other hand it can increase the detection rate.


Btw, did you do a quick scan or a full scan?


If I do a full scan it always scannes over more then 400000+ files sometimes over 500000 files. 63431 is very low. I think you should try a fullscan.
