Eldorado virus detected in setup

#1

Post by Pernick » Thu Mar 18, 2021 12:20 pm

My past 2 attempts to update epg123 have been flagged by the detection of the eldorado virus.

Infected object:
epg123transfer.exe

Infection name:
W32/MSIL_Agent.BVM.gen!Eldorado

Why is this in the epg123 program? Why should I disable my antivirus simply to update epg123?

Probably worth reporting a false-positive to your AV vendor? Looks to be the sole outlier.

Is it Adaware that you are using? Doesn't get great reviews.

VirusTotal says Cyren... an Israeli IT security company I am unfamiliar w/. I see no need to distrust... but FPs happen.

Ah yes, I misread the report. Adaware was the next column along.

Cyren used to make F-Prot, but that is discontinued.

I think the bottom line here is that it is a false positive. It has been a while since I've heard epg123 getting these, so it looks like paying the money to sign the binaries has worked for the cursed "reputation" ones.
