Win32/Infatica.C detection from Dell Support Assist software

Recommended Posts


I just received an alert about a detection on a Dell laptop : Win32/Infatica.C

Infatica is a peer-to-peer proxy service, but what looks strange to me is that the detection occurred when an executable from Dell software Support Assist Agent called infatica Dll : C:\Program Files\Dell\SupportAssistAgent\SRE\SRE.exe

Dell support Assist is installed by default on every Dell computers, a least before a complete reinstall.

Anybody got a message like this recently ?
