    What's up with A-squared calling a .nup file in NOD32, an Archive Bomb? Noticed this on last few scans; A-squared ever update their app, re FPs so as to not call other security companies a "bad guy," or is this the new salesmanship?

    Just wondering...

    Best,

    Just so you're aware, FPs do occur from time to time, and constantly blaming errors on "salesmanship" does get old fast. Best to look at the problem objectively instead, no?

    Upload the file to http://www.virustotal.com for 32 second opinions on whether the file is malware.

    It wouldn't be a bad idea to report the detection to A-Squared.
    They have a support forum or you can "submit file" from quarantine in the program itself.
    I'm sure they will fix it with an update if they are aware of the f/p.

    As an A-squared user I find this disappointing.
    I would rather have the f/p fixed than whitelist a file.

    I have also experience Archive Bomb FP by a-squared. Evidently they either cannot or will not fix it. I may just ditch it.
