Exe being flagged as virus

Postby charbel » Wed Apr 29, 2020 12:54 pm

Hello ,
I'm using the DEMO version of the software , i used your software on it and it has been getting flagged ( on my pc by defender and then i checked on virtus total , arround 6 antiviruses are flagging it as virtus). Will this change if i purchase ?
Few more info:
the .exe is signed and has a valid signature , without having the exe signed all antiviruses are flagging it as a virus
Here are the results :
With vmprotect : https://www.virustotal.com/gui/file/c78 ... /detection
Without VM Protect : https://www.virustotal.com/gui/file/c1e ... /detection

It's called "false positives" and these reports show bugs in antiviruses.

This is a common issue.
Some anti virus are not very advanced and tag the exe file as a virus, this is untrue.
Kaspersky is the reference, and if something is detected by it, this is serious.
Microsoft defender is very very popular, and this one should never report as the packed exe as a virus.

I agree with you. On my computer in my property in Germany I use Avast and it always tags the exe file as a virus. I always have to fix it manually. But besides it I have no issues.
