    I'd say it was a false positive. We didn't change the download between the time it failed your scan and then passed.

    @Scooter:

    Can you offer a brief insight about what was going on here? I am curious to know for the record whether Kaspersky is a hero (found something that other AVs missed) or just over zealous (false positive that was corrected in subsequent virus database) for this event.

    Thanks.

    Downloaded and installed BCompareDebugSetup_080703.exe without incident today. The Kaspersky scan did not find anything (Virus database 7.0.1.321, 7/5/2008 6:34:09 AM).

    MD5: 60f06fffd5bfb74bb0c9d9ec86ac19de

    I downloaded BCompareFullDebugSetup_080703.exe and found the same MD5 as reported by GreenMoose yesterday. I am not aware of anything that has changed at my end other than the newer virus database.

    BC3 461

    Below is what Kaspersky reports, as seen with both of their 2 most recent virus definition updates. As a check, I downloaded another application from the WEB without any problems. I also rescanned four previous BC3 releases (_080422, _080519, _080606, _080619) and nothing turned up. Each scan took about 20 seconds. It is only attempting to download this BC3 release that instantaneously triggers Kaspersky. I don't find much information posted about this virus. Nothing on Kaspersky's site. In the past, I have found Kaspersky is a step ahead of other virus software, but of course I cannot rule out a false detection here or something related to the site.

    I just scanned BCompareDebugSetup_080703.exe and BCompareLinux_080703.deb with Symantec AntiVirus (program version 10.1.4.4000, scan engine version 81.1.0.13, virus definitions 03 Jul 08 rev. 3), and it didn't detect anything.

    I also tried ClamAV (version 0.93.1/7638/Fri Jul 4 07:41:46 2008) and it didn't find anything.

    Virus ??

    Kaspersky reports a virus when I attempt to download BC3 Version 461:

    detected: virus Trojan-GameThief.Win32.OnLineGames.arut URL: http://www.scootersoftware.com/BComp...tup_080703.exe

    I canceled the download.
Working...
