What the heck? There is always use for AutoIt.

Let me see, what about posting the script?

due dilligence is to report to AVG this "false positive". Send them the script and compiled script for reference.

"Potentially unwanted" is an accurate description. It's an executable that makes changes to the system, and so might be "unwanted". The user should be able to ignore the warning and run it anyway (or recover it from Quarantine) if he trusts you and the file.

That's not the same thing as a false positive, where it would indicate infection with a specific virus or trojan that wasn't actually present. In that case, you should report the false positive to AVG and they will update their definitions.

What the heck? There is always use for AutoIt.

Let me see, what about posting the script?

Why? What relevance does the actual content of the script have to the topic? It may have been flagged "Potentially unwanted" just because it's a .exe file. False positives with AutoIt scripts tend to come just from the fact that they are packed with UPX. The actual content of the script is rarely an issue in conflicts with AV software.

Why would he need to automate an install of another anti-virus if he already has AVG installed? If he's switching anti-virus software, he should uninstall AVG first I think.

So someone of us could make is "undetectable", I thought. That is what I do when it gets flagged.

I see now that my post looks kind of dumb ;)

I just didnt really believe in what he was saying.

True, I think it is kind of wierd.

@jangidsushil

What I should do (if I havent the source):

Try to compile the source without UPX or hexediting (try XVI32) the UPX, UPX1 & UPX2 parts in the file to for example ABC, ABC1 & ABC2 so the program doesnt get that it is directly from UPX.

Maybe this has something to do with me having emailed a decompiled AutoIt virus to AVG. They confirmed it was a new virus and they added it to their list of detected viruses. I picked it up in an internet cafe in Laos with my USB stick and recently came across it or a similar one here in Thailand.

For your amusement, here is the source:

Please remove that malicous script immediately.

Before a moderator see's this code.

If a moderator see's that code most likely your going to be taking a trip elsewhere.

I was only going to increase your warning level Beddhist, but after reviewing the code again, I will hopefully stop the idiot train here. If you don't have enough common sense to send that to a Moderator/Developer regardless of how many posts you have... you don't need to be a part of this forum at all.


Common sense plays a role in the basics of understanding AutoIt... If you're lacking in that, do us all a favor, and step away from the computer.
