Security Cloud (Free) detects VHO:Trojan-Spy.MSIL.Convagent.gen and deletes executable, OpenTip shows the same file is clean


Recommended Posts

The title summarizes what is happening, I had to suspend the anti-virus scanning in order to keep the file on my hard drive long enough to upload to OpenTip. I also tried following the instructions for reporting a false positive but apparently if you use any of the free Kaspersky products, you're not allowed to submit false positives.

The file in question is DCS Updater Utility which I downloaded from this web site: https://forum.dcs.world/topic/134493-the-dcs-updater-gui-utility and apparently, Kaspersky isn't the only anti-virus which flags it as infected.

System Info:

  • Windows 10 Pro Version: 21H2 build 19044.1806
  • Kaspersky Security Cloud
  • Databases release date: 2022-07-06 10:33 PM
  • DCS Updater Utility version: 7.1.2021.1 /
