A2 - False Positive

  johndrew 19:19 26 Jun 2006

I did a scan yesterday and had 8 hits that meant nothing to me. I have run other checkers (Ad-Aware, SpyBot and Defender) with no reports of this nature. The only possible source that I can think of is RootkitRevealer which I downloaded a few days back.

I am adding only one as an example as the only difference between them is the CLID number.

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{35B8892D-C3FB-4D88-990D-31DB2EBD72BD}\InprocServer32 --> ThreadingModel Trace.Registry.iMesh 6

Can anyone confirm whether they are false positives or do I have a problem?

Many thanks in anticipation.

Thanks for your response.

I posted as you suggested (after finding I had forgotten my password - come to that I had forgotten I`d registered!!) and today found an addition to my post from a guy in Hong Kong with the same question.

There was also a response from Emsisoft which I don`t fully understand but believe to mean it was something to do with the scanner software which has now been fixed. The actual words are below:

`Fixed. Seems to be a double usage of the same ClsIDs.`

Maybe you could confirm my interpretation or correct me.

Thanks again for your help.

From what I can gather the false positive problem has been fixed with the next A-Squared online update. Have you downloaded the latest updates. If not, update then run the scan again.

Cheers Chris.

Chris Webster,

I always try to stay up to date with anti-malware and have updated yesterday and scanned again. No repeat of the 8 hits so it looks as if the problem is fixed.

Many thanks for your help & advice.
