Virustotal false positive on AltDrag 1.43 software

L0 Member

I am a developer of the AltDrag software that allows you to move/resize windows with the Alt+Click combo like under Linux. Main page here:

Latest release 1.43 can be found here:


It seems that "Palo Alto Networks" antivirus improperly flags the file with the "" flag.


File Hash: BA170C1B2BE713FAE625D5B69F1A2248B8E209EDE260D2BB77DCA1F32530CDCE

Link to Virustotal report for the file:

Current VirustTotal Verdict:


Description: I am 100% sure it is a false positive as I am the main developer of the program and I make the builds myself.

AltDrag does hook the mouse and keyboard to enhance the window management. This is probably why it may look suspicious to some anti-viruses.

It is a problem for some of my users and I would be grateful if you could investigate this and suppress this false alert.

Thanks in advance
