If it's being detected in error then you must submit it to the labs.

Re: Stinger finds trojan in Kapanga softphone download Artemis!265C3DD296CC

I don't think that I said that the Artemis!265C3DD296CC

virus was being found in error (a false positive); I asked if

it was being found in error. I had downloaded the

Kapanga zip file, and before extracting/opening/installing

it, I ran a Stinger scan which automatically deleted the

file in question. I may be a newbie, but I am not so

foolish as to re-download the ("infected"?) file, install it,

and then sit back and wait for evidence of the virus. I

would much rather be pro-active, and let you folk play

with it in your sandbox (is that the right term?) then risk

doing damage to my laptop.

A Google search didn't seem to show any other people

having trouble with the Kapanga software; maybe they

all died from the virus! So did Stinger delete that file

because it KNOWS that that file is the Artemis virus, or

just because it seemed suspicious, or because of how

something else might be configured on my laptop, or

what? A more helpful suggestion would have been

instructions on how to submit the original ("infected"?)

file for evaluation, so you can be sure that Stinger is

working correctly, and so I can be sure that the Kapanga

software is/is not safe to install.

Thank you!

Ah that's different. I moved the thread to the Artemis section.

Here's what to do when something is being wrongly accused of being malware:  https://community.mcafee.com/thread/2016

Hi,

We have analyzed the file and did not notice anything malicious. Artemis!265C3DD296CC has been suppressed. Kindly allow up to two hours for this update to reflect in GTI system.

Regards,

Showvik
