Virus detections for update zip package
« on: September 26, 2022, 17:10:14 »
Hello,

The "VirusTotal" antivirus scan detects a potential threat in the update file for x86 systems: "MultiCommander_win32_Update_(12.1.0.2906).zip".
Here is the result of the analysis: https://www.virustotal.com/gui/file/8e8b9f8ad14e0fefddd84679f02d758d30f8f6c2f4664566f3659200cbae4986/detection/f-8e8b9f8ad14e0fefddd84679f02d758d30f8f6c2f4664566f3659200cbae4986-1663880901

Have you ever seen anything special with this zip file?
Do you know what can cause this positive detection by antivirus software?

Its a false positive, It is very common for application that do lots of file access like a file manager to get flaged.. some malware analyzer see that this application can do lots of different file access operation. And they become suspicious.
There is not much small developers can do about it
