    Hi
    I am a new user so hope I am doing things correctly! I have been using spyware blaster for some time but I have today seen an infection alert from eTrust ezAntivirus telling me that SpywareBlaster\sbautoupdate.exe is infected with Win32/Unknown. I don't use auto update but am concerned about the infection notification. Can anyone advise me please?

    Hi Chipmunk,

    This seems to be a false positive.
    AndyManchesta of SWI's fame posted the same findings.
    He scanned the file at VirusTotal and every other scanner they use there, including eTrust-InoculateIT, stated: no virus found

    I will try to inform eTrust through the channels I have. I suggest you do the same as a user of their product.

    Regards,

    Pieter

    The False Positive has been fixed in the latest update of eTrust.

    You can check the definition version by opening eTrust Antivirus and clicking the Help tab

    latest Virus Signature Version: is 2161

    If it shows a different version click the Update tab then click Update Antivirus.

    Regards

    Andy

    Hi Pieter and Andy

    Thank you both for your response. All is now OK. :D I have update 2162 and this morning I did not receive the notification when I booted up.

    Best wishes - and thanks again

    Glad we could help. :)

    We don't want Javacool to get a bad name when all he does is his best to protect us against spyware.

    Regards,

    Pieter
