    Hello,

    I have trusted AVZ as a secondary antivirus until this(see attached):


    Is this a false positive, because I know Kapersky uses this in their software as well.:doubt:

    Here is the VirusTotal results:

    So let me get this straight: some other security software detects something in AVZ file? Correct?


    In that scenario, I'd report that as false positive to your main AV's vendor. Security software detecting each other's components is all way too common :) That's just because how the work and what they contain (malware sigs for example).

    The fault of the av and not AVZ - FP.

    edit : doing a hash search on virustotal pulls up avz4.zip - 2/41

    People should really have more faith both in themselves and in their security software, and have the courage to report events like these right away to their AV vendor :)

    I can understand hesitancy based on language barriers for example :)
