Forums » Prof-UIS General Discussion » Prof UIS Causing False Positive with Virus Scanner? Collapse All
Subject Author Date

I was running a complete virus scan on my system with Dr. Web’s Cureit and it flagged a Prof UIS library as a virus.  I’m 99% sure it’s a false positive, but it’s probably something you need to work out with the AV maker.  I know the AV makers have a process for dealing with false positives, but the publisher of the software needs to contact them.  At least that was the case with a product I was working on that was generating false positives with one of the scanners out there.

Here are the files flagged:



The virus it claims is there is a Modification of Neurobasher.Alpha.2000

There was another line saying that the line in the lib was 5203  RemovePage@COXDockedPropertySheet

I’m sorry, I got Prof UIS confused with another similar package I experimented with and we decided not to use.  The false positives were with that package.

Mea culpa,

There are no files with names like OCDkPSh.obj (and OCDkPSh.h, and OCDkPSh.cpp) distributed with Prof-UIS.
There are no files with names like UTLibStaticD.obj (and UTLibStaticD.h, and UTLibStaticD.cpp) distributed with Prof-UIS.
There are *.obj at all distributed with Prof-UIS.
Prof-UIS is distributed with complete source code. Any viruses appeared in any compiled modules on your computer(s) are not brought by Prof-UIS source code.
Besides, the Neurobasher virus is e-mail based. Prof-UIS and its installation does not try to perform any e-mail related algorithms and actions.
Additionally, we extremely rarely run any binary modules received from our customers on our computers. But if we need to do this, then, of course, such module sand apps are checked by antivirus apps and run on virtual or stand-alone machines. This, of course, does not bring 100% guarantees because we always must suspect existence of nobody known and nobody detected malware which can appear on any computers, including ours, from nobody known source. But, at least, we do not try to do anything to increase probability of such surprises.
