URLDownloadToFile - Virus?

7 posts in this topic

hi to all....

i come here because i don't understand what's happend...

i have Anti-vir and i try to use the instruction "URLDownloadToFile" for download a file txt from my website (i have a file txt as log in website and i want to keep a copy of this file in my pc).

i use the instruction:

if URLDownloadToFile ( "File_On_My_Website", "File_Local" ) = 1 Then
    MsgBox(048, "File", "File scaricato correttamente")
Else
    MsgBox(016, "File", "Errore durante il download del file")
endIf

and when i try to compile this script anti-vir tell me that it is a virus (SPR/Agent.198979)

why Anti-vir tell me that it is a virus?

p.s. sorry for my english...

A lot of virus programs say that AutoIt scripts could be viruses. Since it downloads a file it most likely things it's a Trojan Downloader.

It's been a long time since URLDownloadToFile was renamed to INetGet, but it looks like it's still allowed as an alias.

It's not mentioned anywhere in the helpfile though, except for in the history it looks like.

Anyway, just in case you didn't know the newest version of AutoIt is 3.2.2.0, so if you're still running a pre-3.1.0

version I would suggest you to update :whistle:

Hi together,

i have the same problem, but without any code.

My code is :

CODE

IF MsgBox(1+32,"Fehler","Mach mal Update?")=1 Then

Exit

Else

Exit

EndIf

No include, nothing else.

The problem seem to bee the packing routing or something like that (http://www.autoitscript.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=34658)

I've sent an email to Antivir, the answer in german is:

Yes, as I said, UPX is a semi-popular packer, which many MALICIOUS hackers or CRACKERS use. Or just plain malicious coders. Anyways, McAfee and Norton get this in their system, along with about 200 other. They then think that packed with UPX programs are evil. Send a couple anti-viruses your code, etc.
