The following file was (mistakenly?) detected as a Trojan by McAfee Security Center on a regularly scheduled overnight scan on 3/12/2010.
Since -- unlike most other ISSs - MSC doesn't notify the user of any detections by means of a widget for the system tray icon (and I sometimes forget to check in the morning the results of the previous night's scan), I did not discover the item in quarantine until today.
Attempts to login at Webimmune this morning were unsuccessful.
I attempted to restore the file and I sent it to Avert via email as a password-protected zip file attachment, as instructed (thank you, Ex_Brit, for the recent details on how to do this).
However, since MSC automatically re-quarantines the file immediately as soon as it is restored, I cannot operate my Cyberlink Power DVD application.
File path: C:\PROGRAM FILES (x86)\CYBERLINK\POWERDVD DX\KERNEL\BD\VIDEOFILTER
Detection Name: Artemis!02DD84D01D89 (Trojan)
Item: C:\PROGRAM FILES (x86)\CYBERLINK\POWERDVD DX\KERNEL\BD\VIDEOFILTER\VC1DSSE2.DLL
I have experienced no symptoms on the computer.
All daily scans with MSC have been clean, as have numerous scans with both Malwarebytes AntiMalware Pro 1.44 and SuperAntiSpyware 4.34.1.
My MSC product information:
OEM McAfee Security Center on my Dell Studio XPS 8100 (purchased Feb, 2010), 2009 versions (I have not yet received the 2010 versions via update service):
Security Center: 9.15.175
Virus Scan 13.15.116 (Today's DAT version is 5921 (3/15/2010), but the DAT version on 3/12/2010 would have been an earlier version)
Personal Firewall 10.15.106
Parental Controls 11.15.102
System Information: Dell Studio XPS 8100 (new!), running Windows 7 Ultimate (64-bit). Everything is fully-patched and up-to-date.
I did receive automated reply to my email submission as "inconclusive" and that it did not match any of the known threats in the database, but further study would be needed.
In the interim, since MSC automatically re-quarantines the file immediately as soon as it is restored, I cannot operate my Cyberlink Power DVD application with the file missing/quarantined.
Please advise. Thank you,
