My Kaspersky says there is PDM:Trojan.Win32.Generic in Content Manager. It's false?
Same reports here when I'm trying to create previews
It's been well-discussed in the CM thread @ the official forum. False positives happen with the software sometimes. (My Norton has never said a thing about it but it seems like a lot of people using Kaspersky get the alarm.)
I'm still using Norton ... but not for long any more ( after +- 20 years Symantec use )
And that's surely the same problem with Kaspersky and some other security suites. ... it seems they cannot make a difference between a real Trojan Gen8 ( Name in Norton ) and some processes present in some softwares.
The only solution is ... report it as false positive ... and each time I did ( 3 times ) ... it was well a false positive.
This problem happened with Rfactor2 - Automobilista - Fanaleds ( some other had even problems with MSI tools ).
But the problem is never finally settled ... a new update always recreated the same problem ( even if the concerned .exe files were excluded from analysis ).
I understand it's a safety modus operandi ... but it seems ridiculous they didn't find yet a system to make a difference between the real Trojan and a false positive: this problem touches too many software editors who surely have no interest to include Trojans in their softwares ... they are clever enough to avoid such a mistake !
It's time to make a difference between prudence and paranoia ( the style: it looks like but as safety professionals we're not clever enough to find the difference !!! ).
