Trojan horse detected by AVG v9.0 (paid version)

Post by neilallison147 » Fri Sep 03, 2010 2:39 am

I have just purchased ScriptCryptor and have generated an exe. When I try to run it or e-mail it, AVG detects a Trojan horse. (Trojan horse generic 18 FTT).

I've tried uploading it to www.virustotal.com and don't see any information on the screen that helps.
I've also tried to e-mail it to them but I get a message saying the mailserver has detected a virus too.

Where to now?

I managed to get it e-mailled to Virus Total by shutting AVG off. Here are the results.

Looks cool, especially:

AntiVir 8.2.4.46/20100902 found [SPR/QuickBatch.Gen]

- point to the Quick Batch File Compiler

ClamAV 0.96.2.0-git/20100902 found [PUA.Crypt.ScriptCryptor]

- yes, it compiled with ScriptCryptor

VBA32 3.12.14.0/20100902 found [Trojan.Win32.Delf.spj]

- yes, we use the Delphi for Win32

Please understand that this is false positives. AV detect our compiler and mark it as suspicious file because it can be used for virus creation.

Ok. But what can be done about it? I can't be creating .exe files and installing them on clients machines where there is a potential for their virus software to pick them up as infected.

It has to be something to do with ScriptCryptor because there appears to be so many posts on this forum where virus software is detecting virus's in the .exe files (albeit incorrect).

If there is nothing Abyss can do to fix this, then as good as the software appears to be, it will be of no use to me.

You need to submit the false positive report to AV company and they remove signature from database.

Please understand, we don't know your AV version, database version, don't have your EXE file, so we can not submit report to AV.

That's all well and good for th AV package that I am using but what about all the other AV packages on the list from Virus Total? What if my clients where I install the .exe files are using a different AV package (which they almost certainly are !!).
Do I have to submit a report to ALL the AV software vendors? That's not really practical is it?

In fact, most vendors just copied detections form others, so one report may remove few detections.

So can I assume that Abyss Media will not do anything about this issue?

We can only release new version that will not match with current signature.

When is this new version likely to be released?

I'm sure you understand that I cannot be installing exe files at clients sites that are going to be reported as infected.

If the new release can't resolve this, then I'm afraid I will be requesting a refund. Which would be a shame because the product is fast, really easy to use and very well priced.

Here's hoping we can get a satisfactory resolution.

As I know, AV doesn't like encryption routines in our compilers, so we will update algorithm for all compilers at this month.

I have submitted a sample to VirusTotal and got only one false detection
from VBA32 (who is it?):

http://www.virustotal.com/file-scan/rep ... 1284561354

ClamAV detect it as PUA.Crypt.ScriptCryptor (not a virus!)
Panda report about suspicious file
