Virus False Positive ? - Winrar

L3 Networker

I flipped on Virus Filtering today and within 5 minutes got my first potential false positive.

Any reason why it would think Winrar.exe is a Virus ?

It thought it was Trojan-GameThief/Win32.magania.flfe

I immediate shut off virus filtering. I cant be dealing with tons of false positives. Unless this is really a virus, which I doubt.

Any insight would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Justin

Thanks Justin. Can you call or email support with this info, so that they can verify it and potentially open up a case to track it?

Thanks,

Alfred

Ok, I've done that. If users have any insights on how often false positives happens I would love to hear it. Can I turn AV back on without worrying about tons of false positives. We have a group of people here who are very sensitive to Internet access being blocked incorrectly.
