Experiences with Symantecs Virusscan deleting Autoit files?

7 posts in this topic

Hi

has anyone experiences with the symantec antivirus. It seems to delete some compiled autoit Files and does not allow to recompile these files...

I do not know what happend - but not all files have this problem.

Perhaps there are any hints which command to avoid in autoit so it isn't recognized as virus?

EnCodeIt is hardly the issue for your False Positive.

Help...

I am having the same issue. McAfee is deleteing all our compiled autoit scripts. We don't use EncodeIt either.

Hi,

my Norton Internet Security sometimes delete the file ...AutoIt3\SciTe\Defs\UpdateDefs.exe.

Symantec identifies the file as a Trojan Horse containing a "Downloader".

Reinstalling SciTE resolves the Problem.

These all look like false positives - a common enough problem documented in many, many threads on these forums. Have you reported the problem files to the antivirus vendor for checking and a signature update to skip them if they are false positives? If they are genuinely infected, you need to know that too!
