    Looks like Kaspersky FP strikes again ;)
    Might want to report it to KL.

    oh men!

    couple of days ago KIS tagged anyDVD as trojan downloader

    after an hour, uTorrent is also tagged as trojan downloader.

    i guess the senior analyst already resigned from Kasp Lab and new junior analyst take over the job.....result lots of FP :D

    Not to throw fuel on the fire, but there was a LONG time between updates yesterday too (15 hours on my machine). I wonder if they were going through a scrub to fix some of this stuff.

    Still, I'd prefer FPs that can be fixed to getting False Negatives. Guess I'm a fanboy :D

    It also detects a little tool from a dutch dating site as heur.trojan. I reported to Kaspersky and they confirmed it is not a virus. But it is still detected, so I wrote again, they told me it should be alright but it still detects it. So I don't know, I switched to Kaspersky because I believed they would most likely listen to costumers and fix things quickly. Now with all those false positives and in my case no fix at all .. I start doubting.

    Man, KAV is good at detecting threats, but the way they treat their customers really sucks. So don't expect they will listen to you carefully.

    It got fixed in the meantime. Maybe all the Kaspersky staff is on summer holidays like the rest of the working population :)
