TD.exe a Threat?

(1/4) > >>

Three different anti-virus products identify td.exe as a threat and quarantine file. Anyone else encounter this?

Corey Cooper:
Which three?

I've already submitted false-positive reports to AVG and Avast.  Those two should no longer misidentify TD.exe as infected with malware.  For those who demand proof, responses are below.  :)

AVG, Avast, Bitdefender. Avira does not show TD as threat but locks registry so when I try to run TD my key is not recognized.

Corey Cooper:
Interesting.  AVG and Avast should stop whenever the latest update is applied.  Can't say for Bitdefender - I'll look into it.  Makes me wonder if all of these anti-virus vendors get their virus definitions from the same place (they likely do).  One would hope that once they recognize a false positive it would be sent back to the provider to update their definitions, and thus all of the vendors using those definitions would get the update...

That's a lot of anti-virus.  Do you actually run all of them?

No, no! I was running AVG when problem surfaced. Tried the others to see if one would not return the false positive as MalwareBytes Anti-Malware had no problem with the file.
