Trojan.GenericKD.34590357 in version 15.7.5 Update Pack Empty Trojan.GenericKD.34590357 in version 15.7.5 Update Pack

Hi,
Not sure what's going on; I've just tried to install the version 15.7.5 Update Pack - klcp_update_1575_20200922.exe - which I've downloaded from the Codec Guide site and got this (Bitdefender 2020):

Code:
The file C:\Users\...\AppData\Local\Temp\is-KJFVH.tmp\klcp_update_1575_20200922.tmp is infected with Trojan.GenericKD.34590357. The threat has been successfully blocked, your device is safe.

Can you please check and confirm whether this is a false positive or something nefarious happened?

Thanks

vikdean

It is a false positive.

You can always verify detections with VirusTotal. It looks like Bitdefender has already fixed it.

Doesn't seems like it... I've updated the definitions, but this time it caught it during the download:
Code:
The file ....\Unconfirmed 426658.crdownload is infected with Trojan.GenericKD.34590345. The threat has been successfully blocked, your device is safe.

There is nothing I can do about it. Report the false positive to Bitdefender.

I have checked the downloads and the files are genuine.

Again, it is a false positive.

You can also use the normal installers to update:

Bitdefender doesn't seems to complain about those.

Normal installers didn't work for me. I had to temporarily disable Bitdefender to update, but was successful. Weird that it would suddenly turn up a false positive for three different trojans (Trojan.GenericKD.43907418 for me) – never had a problem with these codecs before. Wonder what the hell triggered it?

False positives for installers happen quite frequently. But usually they are fixed quickly, so you won't notice it.

These are generic/heuristic detections, meaning it did not find a known piece of malware, but just software with some suspicious behavior. In case of an installer, the fact that it creates files is already something that may be considered suspicious by a scanner that doesn't know that this legitimate/wanted behavior.
