Trojan in latest release - Trojan:Win32/Fuerboos.B!cl

Post by Aloonatic on Sat Dec 30, 2017 6:48 pm

I see that someone else has raised this but you thought that they were referring to the additional software that you need to avoid installing when installing your codec pack.

However, what I think they are referring to is what I was alerted to by Windows Defender:

Trojan:Win32/Fuerboos.B!cl

That was inside the Standard version of your codec pack that I downloaded just before Christmas.

K-Lite_Codec_Pack_1375_Standard.exe

What's the deal?

This is noted as being a server threat by Microsoft

It is a false detection by Windows Defender. The pack is and always has been clean. Additional software isn't included in the installer, but only downloaded after approval.

All 66 scanners (including Microsoft) confirm it is clean:

You can verify that you have a genuine file by scanning it with VirusTotal.

I downloaded the file using one of the links on your site:

https://www.codecguide.com/download_k-lite_codec_pack_standard.htm

So I don't know why they would point me to a non-genuine file?

I deleted the file after the virus was detected.

The downloads on codecguide are genuine and clean. So in that case it was a false positive from Defender. They might have already fixed that, so download again.

Scanners make mistakes too, certainly with their heuristic detections like in this case. VirusTotal is useful for second opinion. Also for suspicious files that your own scanner doesn't detect.
