    With this newer version I have had two false positives. One is the popular Yahoo game "Bejeweled" and there other is this program: http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/pspv.html

    Is it likely that Eset cares about this?

    Hi zilla1126:

    The Passview would most likely not be considered a "false positive" due to the nature of revealing passwords in protected storage. A network admin would not want that program run on any machine without their knowledge.

    You can, however, exclude that file from being scanned in AMON.

    What one person may consider a "false positive" another would consider as a vulnerability in this case.

    I have passware on my machines, they aren't reported as threats - wouldn't they be in the same category?
