Virustotal false positive on AltDrag 1.45 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 1.45 can be found here:


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


File Hash: 3B45F3D8A022221E5E5FB405D2A2C1A4443152EAC6C62832C15B9216E69E0A76

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.

Note that I had a similar false positive issue with the previous versions (AltDrag 1.43 and 1.44) that was quickly resolved.

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
