Avast AntiVirus false positives (Win:Autoit [Trj])

4 posts in this topic

Right after my Avast Virus scanner updated to the 0642-0 database (10/17/06), it started telling me that every one of my compiled Autoit scripts were Trojans (Win:Autoit [Trj]). Has anyone else seen this issue with Avast, or any other virus scanner lately?

I'm sending a report to Avast right now.

Yups avast reports compiled scripts as Trojan here too, but it didn't know it was a new problem, I'm just trying it out. Not gonna stay on my system for long by the looks of it...

I've been running Avast for about 2 months now, and this is the first time that it's popped up stating that all my compiled scripts are infected, including the "AutoIT3Wrapper.exe". I sent the false positive report to Avast (email: virus@avast.com).

I've had this issue with other Virus scanners that I've used in the past with regards to AutoIT compiled scripts. There will always be someone out there that screws things up for the rest of us by producing evil things with good tools. Virus producers should be hung by their N*+$.

Thanks th.meger for the link.

Here a thread on Avast Forums about this AutoIT issue:
