#405 closed Bug (No Bug)

GUI bug

Reported by: blade_quest@… Owned by:
Milestone: Component: AutoIt
Version: Severity: Blocking
Keywords: Cc:


The single line in any Auto-It script I write is picked up by many anti-virus companies (I used jotti online malware/virus scanner) as a Sohanad virus/worm variant. This was with Auto-It versions before the latest one as of today, June 23 2008. Now however I'm receiving virus detections in the scripts labeled as Virus.VirTool.Win32.MS04.028.a (Ikarus Antivirus), and Trojan-Spy.Win32.KeyLogger.hfand (VBA32 Antivirus).

#include <GUIConstants.au3>

Is there a reason for this false positive? I've reported the issue to the virus companies myself, but they never responded to my submitted tickets. I tore my scripts apart trying to find what the virus scanners were picking up on, and the single include file above is the sole cause of the false positive. I compiled the script with just the single line above in the code. I've uninstalled my auto-it and reinstalled the newest versions from the auto-it website and I still receive the false positive. Can you guy's fix the GUIConstants.au3 file so it is no longer detected as a virus? Much thanks to you in advance!

BTW I'm using Auto-it Version and SciTE Version 1.76. The script was compiled without UPX etc, with all default options.
