Hello Wilders community! I'm fanboy 01 and this is my first post on Wilders! I decided to join the Wilders community simply because I have an interest in PC security. I've been lurking around wilders for the past several months and I must say, that this is a very awesome website. Keep up the good work Paul! Anyway, I wanted to ask a question about two particular security apps. These two apps are Online Solutions Autorun Manager and AVZ Anti-viral toolkit. I did some research about these two apps and I found both apps intriguing. I was going to give the two apps a try until I ran into some "complications". I'll start with AVZ. I researched AVZ on some download websites and I saw some comments about a possible virus lurking within AVZ. Here are the comments I could find: From portablefreeware: (http://www.portablefreeware.com/?id=1530) Edwin: AVZ put a file called "utmyntkw.sys" in c:\windows\system32\driver. Panda tells me that this files has the rootkit/bagle.uv in it. [2010-02-09 19:38] bajaatan: Spybot (Tea timer) see this program as Dropper.4Maximus and terminate process. Earlier version didn't have this problem [2010-07-12 06:44] From freewarefiles: (http://www.freewarefiles.com/review_17_244_58421.html) MCHAL: It's reported to create a dangerous .sys file in Windows drivers folder by many software brands at virustotal.com. 2010-07-12 These were the only comments I could find. Did anybody know about these "virus" drivers? As for OSAM, the only comments about a virus I could find were from raymond.cc (yes, I know that the comments are old). http://www.raymond.cc/blog/archives...e-autorun-manager-with-online-malware-scanner fman January 16th, 2009 at 2:40 am I am also always on the lookout for a good startup organizer/manager. This one is great thanks. btw. I notice you removed my reply.After updating nod32 keeps warning me but it’s probably a false positive. gamamew January 16th, 2009 at 5:30 am My NOD 32 detetecs the portable version as \”probably a variant of Win32/Packed.Themida application \”. I\’m concerned of trying the installable version too. Usman January 20th, 2009 at 2:00 pm It’s a great software but i cannot download it as my eset antivirous showing that it contains virous.My antivirous showing that it contain Win32/Packed.Themida virous. Can you please suggest me that is it safe to ignore this warning message? I downloaded the RAR version of OSAM and submitted it to virustotal and it alerted some of the scanners. I unpacked the files from the RAR and I submitted each individual through virustotal (there were only 9 files) and the only file that alerted scanners was the actual OSAM executable. I provided a link of the virustotal report. ~ VirusTotal Results Removed per Policy ~ Now, the dumb thing is that I'm pretty sure that these files are false positives due to the fact that I haven't read many complaints about possible viruses within these two apps (one user on virustotal rated the OSAM.exe as goodware!) and the fact that I've seen Wilders users using these apps themselves! The simple thing I want to know is that these are false positives, right? I would appreciate if anybody could verify that both OSAM and AVZ are 100% safe and virus free. Even though I have a very strong hunch that both OSAM and AVZ are false positives (I know that AVZ was developed by a Kaspersky worker and heard that the functions of AVZ were built into Kaspersky's own antivirus!), I'm just trying to be "better safe than sorry". Hey, you never know when a good security app will turn bad and join the dark side (i.e., Firefox add-ons like Ghostery and TACO, a legitimate anti-malware app that has become crippleware or a rogue). Any help or input will be appreciated. Thanks!
