False positive : Visual Studio 2009 devenv.exe

Recommended Posts

Hi all

 

Using KAV for Windows Workstations 6.0.3.837, latest version and latest virus definitions as of today (13/8/2009)

We did a fresh installation of Visual Studio 2008 with Compact Framework SDK (for development on PDAs).

Whenever we start the PDA emulation in Visual Studio (for debugging), Kaspersky catches a RootShell danger and quarantines the Visual Studio executable !

("C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0\Common7\IDE\devenv.exe")

 

This did not happen on the previous installation (but the workstation was completely reinstalled), and I don't know where the difference is.

For the moment, I am going to add an exception to my group strategy, but this can only be a short term workaround of course.

 

I don't know what the correct way is to submit false positives ?

 

Regards

It looks at a false positve.

 

Add this program to the trusted zone.

 

I hope that this issue is solved with the next update.

I have, but I don't like this kind of workarounds.
