False Positives problem of anti-virus

L0 Member

Hi,

I received a virus block message (  Client-IRC/IRC.mirc.0113 ) when I entering the following URL:

http://pmb.update.sony.net/SPU/SPUDownloadManagerInst.exe

But this file was passed by other virus scan software (Sophos).

Was It a false positive or not?

http://www.virustotal.com/ is a great resource to test and find out if your file is a false-positive or not.
