I've never used Sumatra PDF Reader personally, I thought I would point out that clicking on the link that Aryeh Goretsky has in the post above mine results in a "Access Denied" by ESET. Software is ESET Smart Security 6.0.316.0 with virus signature database 8398. EDIT: Attached is a pic of what hapens when I click the link.
BStill replied to BStill's topic in ESET Internet Security & ESET Smart Security PremiumHello, and thank you for the replies. It is specially crafted in a sense that it's for a specific game. However it is a 3rd party patch, so therefore is more suspect than if it were an "official" patch. The file zipped up is still 140mb, most ISP's won't allow email's over 20mb some up to 25mb, so it seems sending the file through email is not an option. I have not tried any other a/v program to scan it yet, as two a/v programs usually end up in a multitdue of errors on a microsoft operating system. I was going to try a site like virus total but for some reason the site wont load, so that seems to be a dead end. The error reads.. Scan completed in 0 seconds Number of objects scanned: 0 Number of infected objects: 0 Number of cleaned objects: 0 ...\Downloads\cm-patch0140hf\cm-enable.exe » INDIGOROSE - archive damaged It seems to me that if it could falsely report a damage then a virus could be hidden. Any help on forcing a scan or any other ideas would be greatly appreciated. Update: I scanned the downloaded .zip file with the current version of Clam A/V on a Linux operating system. The scan took 5 seconds to finish and came back with no infections of the two .exe files. The virus database recognizes over 2.2 million variations of viruses. It seems to me to "fool" ESET anti-virus all a malicious attacker would have to do is plant a virus into an indigorose package. So my questions are now... 1.) Why is it that a free and open source anti virus program can scan a file that the a/v program I'm paying for can not? 2.) Is there a way to force ESET into scanning the indigorose packed file? Thanks
BStill posted a topic in ESET Internet Security & ESET Smart Security PremiumHello I have an .exe file that I'm tring to scan with ESET Smart Security 6 for viruses. When I attempt a scan, it stops after 2 seconds and states that the archive is damaged and not scanned. Actually it's not a damaged file and will run and patch as it is supposed to. Why is it that the a/v can't scan the file? Thanks for any help on this!
