FALSE POSITIVE problem on VirusTotal Feedback
Hello, we made an executable for a ROM track (DVD-ROM) Multimedia DVD that simply auto-execute the multimedia application present in the dvd-rom.
You can download the executable from this link:
The sample is in a password protected zip file the archive password is "infected"
We made the executable and it isn't a virus or malware but actually it is recognized by your antivirus heuristic code as malware.
We hereby declare that this code doesn't contain any malware or virus code and submit it for your analysis.
The executable will generate a simple BAT file that will change directory and call another executable in the cd-rom executing those commands:
Actually is needed because the real executable only work in a sub-directory but we need to execute it from the root directory of the cd-rom.
We are requesting to be identified as secure also because we can’t modify the cd-rom already distribuited.
We can give you also sources or all details you’ll need for whitelisting.
We are actually contacting all the anti-virus vendors that marked our software as “malicious” and many of them had removed the false positive hit on our software.
We started to check our executable on 2018-12-06 15:29:22 UTC and VirusTotal report lowered from 36/68 to only 12/69 as is today, so we are every day check with the remaining anti-virus vendors that hadn’t removed the false positive on our software and every day is lowering.
If you need any more info, sources or whatever is necessary for removing the false positive hit on our software please ask.
Thankyou very much.
