After Compiling to Exe/A3X a virus detected

Recommended Posts


Hey Guys,

I hope that you can help me out here.

For a couple of months i have a problem with creating scripts through AutoIT.
The problem is that when i compile the script to Exe or A3X Microsoft Essentials is seeing it as a virus and deleting the file instantly.

I have tried several things but nothing seems to work.
When i start over and create a new script there is no problem at all, but after a while the script is groing (adding new features) and it will be detected as a virus again.

Okay, thats no problem because i can add a exception the the AntiVirus Program, but the latest feature in my script is a logging feature.
So when the script is running it will log several things about the user to a special logging server.
Thats when i noticed that my scripts are beeing executed in other country's and with very strange computer names,..

I have added a lot of library's to the script (see below), is it possible that one of them is beeing corrupted or hacked?
I have just installed the complete AutoIT program from this website, so i am assuming that the library's are clean.

Thanks guys!

Will write to Microsoft for reporting a false positive.
