    A new computer was reported to be infected by another anti-virus program.

    ESET online scan was used to check the computer. ESET reported Agobot Worm infections in files -
    C:\SvcTools\8.0.81.5\bin\AgentRem.exe
    C:\SvcTools\8.0.81.5\bin\curl.exe
    C:\SvcTools\8.0.81.5\bin\SetupAgt-8.0.81.5.exe

    The suspect files were sent to the anti-virus vendor and report was -
    Unfortunately, the previous virus database might have detected the mentioned virus on some legitimate applications. We can confirm that it was a false alarm. We have immediately released a new virus update that removes the false positive detection on this file.

    ESET should be aware of this potential false alarm.
