Steam.exe, Steam.exe.old and SteamSetup.exe flagged as Trojans

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

I've just run a full custom elevated system analysis and inside %PROGRAMFILESX86%\Steam two executables were flagged as Trojans, more specifically "Steam.exe.old" and "Steam.exe".

To my surprise I downloaded the Steam installer directly from their website and same red flag arose from ESET Internet Security. The alleged trojan ESET was referring to was named as "Win32/GenKryptik.GZLH". I guess this is a false positive but I need your confirmation before trashing Windows.

Here you can see a screenshot (Sorry about being on Spanish):



These 3 files were also flagged on virustotal...
