Posssible false positive


Recommended Posts

I was wondering if someone could check into a possible false positive I got for a Win32/Olmarik.TDL4.Trojan after I downloaded and installed hxxp://www.surfright.nl/en/kickstartto a USB flash drive. I booted the flash drive, which was recently long formatted under Win7 shut the machine down and booted normally. WIthin several minutes Eset 7.0.317.4 alerted me that Win32/Olmarkig.TDL4.Trojan was on this computer. The Eset removal tool hxxp://kb.eset.com/esetkb/index?page=content&id=SOLN3339 did not find anything neither did a bunch of other utils including TDSSKiller.


I am wondering whether the above util is actually installing a rootkit or whether this is a false positive by Eset NOD32.


To fix the problem I booted with a Windows7 install disk and did a bootsec install followed by a fixmbr. Subsequent scans by NOD32 show no infection.
