    Hi dear AVG staff,

    The latest AVG 8.0 definitions update (free version) now detect the known UPX Shell v3.2.1.2007 (Open Source project) as Generic10.YFX.

    This detection is correct or is a new false positive?

    I use this app since years ago and its the first time that some abtivirus detect this app as malware.

    Well, as AVG now don't provide none mail to send virus or malware sample file (ewido site now don't have a send sample virus page), here is the official URL Download:

    Code:
    ht tp://sourceforge.net/project/downloading.php?group_id=90269&use_mirror=ufpr&filename=UPXShell-3.2.1.2007.exe&52373687
    Thanks in advance.

    Hi MDestroy,

    Seems to have been a false positive as it does no longer detect it. (Latest definitions just updated)

    I am sorry for the inconvenience.

    Edit: Ah, yes if something was detected and put into the Virus Vault you can submit selected files to the analysis directly from AVG instead of uploading it on a website or sending it by email yourself.

    Regards,
    Vinzenz
