Developer issues

Recommended Posts

Hi.

 

I'm maintaining VB6 applications and i'm facing an issue where if i compile a new program, most of the time KES is detecting it as a "HEUR:Trojan.Win32.Generic". Opening KES and re-scanning the EXE, it passes as OK but trying to execute it, i get an Access Denied. The program is a few lines nad it's completely safe, it just uses an external COM control.

I wouldn't like to have to submit the EXE to Kaspersky for approval  or something. Apart from excluding the whole folder from scanning (which i don't consider to be safe), is there anything else i could do?

 

Win7SP1x64

KES 10.3.0.6294 AES256

Hi Nikolay,

So in order to be sure i understand correctly, this means that if a virus somehow affects a "Trusted" exe, it will be allowed to perform whatever it wants, or it will just NOT be scanned by the Heuristics algorithm?

Well, i followed this procedure:

- Disabled file anti-virus.

- added the program parent folder (with subfolders) in "scan exclusions and trusted applications / scan exclusions".

- added the program itself in "scan exclusions and trusted applications / scan exclusions".

- added the program itself in "scan exclusions and trusted applications / trusted applications".

- Re-enabled file anti-virus (i disabled it at first because KES wouldn't let me select it in order to add it to exclusions!).

KES is still blocking it! I can't imagine what KES finds and decides to block this program. It's a 28K exe, should i sent it for examination? I can send it along with the source code (less than 100 lines - blanks counted!) and an external dll it uses.
