    I use xB Browser. Is it possible to upgrade the Tor component of it without uninstalling the XB Browser?

    Yes. Just unpack tor from any installer, and drop the files into the directory tor is in. We'll probably build a new version later today.

    Steve, is the new version of xB Browser out already?


    BTW, TrojanHunter says:

    "Found trojan file: C:\Program Files\XeroBank\Data\Browser\plugins\KillProcDLL.dll (Riskware.PSKill.105)" o_O

    If this is a false positive, can you communicate it with Magnus Mischel, please?

    Prevx SafeOnline flags xBBrowser as "High risk cloaked malware".

    Some other antivirii detect is too.

    Using a licensed copy of Prevx, I find no flagged files -- and I have several versions of XeroBank software on this machine (old, current and betas). I've enabled all of the basic configuration options except desktop shortcut, password for configuration and auto blocking, and used these heuristics settings ...

    Advanced Heuristics - Maximum (Apply before Age/Popularity detection)
    Program Age Heuristics - Maximum
    Program Popularity Heuristics - Maximum

    Where did you get your copy of XeroBank? What are your Prevx settings?

    I would be interested in what it doesn't seem to like, specifically. there isn't any encryption on it, only compression and some well known DLLs that perform rather simple tasks.

    Steve, maybe you should try sending to SafetyFirst a version of the software without any compression at all and see if it's not a false positive related to that.

    Prevx team has fixed it.

    Still we have the TrojanHunter detection.
