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