    Hi:

    I downloaded from Sierra Wireless, see link, the sierra drivers for my At&t Mercury usb wireless device.

    http://www.sierrawireless.com/Support.aspx


    But when run prevx 3.0 it considers the file below as threat:

    driverinst.exe

    Is this true or is a false positive? Please let me known.

    Thanks

    Victor

    c:\program files (x86)\sierra wireless inc\3g watcher\driverinstaller\driverinst.exe [PX5: D154317D700ACA8CB5E1035597118E004BCE1F3D] Malware Group: Medium Risk Malware Downloader

    Just upload this file driverinst.exe to VirusTotal (or Jotti etc.) and see for yourself what other vendors think about this driver to get an impression:

    c:\program files (x86)\sierra wireless inc\3g watcher\driverinstaller\driverinst.exe [PX5: D154317D700ACA8CB5E1035597118E004BCE1F3D] Malware Group: Medium Risk Malware Downloader

    Btw .. I would suggest to *NOT* post entire logfiles as there are informations shown that you maybe don't like to get published (use of keygens etc.).

    If you want Prevx to fix a false positive it is enough to send them the lines with in front from logfile (copy & paste).

    It looks like this was fixed a few hours ago - could you try scanning again and let me know?

    Thanks :)
