    ESET NOD32 Antivirus 4.2.71.2
    database 6583

    So I had a user come to me this morning and say they had NOD32 pop up saying it had found a Threat. I went to look at their computer and noticed when they click within outlook on their RSS feeds folder NOD32 would instantly pop-up a threat found alert. So I started a scan of their machine and said I would be back to check on it.

    I came back to my office and I figured I would check what would happen if I clicked on my Outlook RSS feed folder since the user stated that they did not use that folder and neither do I. Well I got the same results, and can reproduce the results every time we click on the RSS feeds folder within outlook 2007 or 2010.

    Is this a known issue or is there some setting I missed when setting up our machines with NOD32?

    Same issue here and with Microsoft help and other MS sites.

    I contacted Eset support and the confirm it is a false positive and should be fixed with the next update.
