    AVG AntiSpyware with the latest definitions is showing the following log:

    C:\Program Files\Eset\Install\setup.exe -> Backdoor.Ceckno.xd : No action taken.
    C:\Program Files\Eset\Setup\setup.exe -> Backdoor.Ceckno.xd : No action taken.
    C:\Program Files\Eset\nod32krn.exe -> Backdoor.Ceckno.xd : No action taken.
    C:\Program Files\Eset\nod32kui.exe -> Backdoor.Ceckno.xd : No action taken.

    I scanned these with the following and they showed the above files to be clean:

    1. Kaspersky Online Scanner
    2. BitDefender10 Free Edition
    3. TrendMicro HouseCall
    4. a2free

    I have not uploaded any of these to VirusTotal. I think that the chances of it not being a false positive is slim. What do you think?

    If it is a false positive, please make a correction.

    Thank you.

    I updated this morning and found the above problem. I forgot to update this afternoon before checking again. After updating this afternoon the above problem was gone.

    Yes, there was a false positive, but we have released an update yesterday that fixed this false detection.
