    I am curious if this is a false positive - file was downloaded from tizersecure [dot] com

    I installed Tizer Rootkit earlier today, and just now Prevx popped up with three threats: two of them were rootkits and were located in the "Program Files (x86)" folder as the file "RootKitRazor.exe" as well as the "program files (x86)" as the file "rootkitrazor.exe"

    I am confused if they are the same file since the only difference was the upper case and lower case.

    There was a third threat categorized simply as "threat" and was located in the C: recycle bin folder. It was a hidden folder and I was unable to access it as I was denied access, even on my administrator account.

    As such I was only able to get the MD5 hash of one of the files. I ran it through Jotti and Virus Total and none of the scanners found anything wrong. ThreatExpert also found nothing suspicious with the file.

    Curious to see if anyone else has had the same issue with Prevx saying Tizer is a rootkit.
