False positive
« on: June 28, 2019, 10:57:40 AM »
I have been using Comodo on my Dell laptop since I started using it 16/10/2018.
I ran several complete scans  since then.
I was having issues with automatic scans not running anymore.
To solve this I re-installed Comodo.
It ran a quick scan at startup. Nothing found.

I then ran a full scan. Now malware was found:
Malware[at]#1djogubu7bolu>  DellUpdateApp.msi
This was located in C:\\Windows.
I went looking at the given location and it was dated from 2018 - probably from the start of the laptop.
As I opened the map Comodo mentioned it had quarantained malware and the file was gone.
I found it in Comodo blocked application list and indicated it as false positive and deblocked it. It is now back in the original location but with yesterday's date.

I also found a mention of this in a Dell forum but I do not understand the answer given there (

Note: This file was never found in previous scans!!!!!!!

This is to inform you that false-positive has been fixed.
You can update to AV database Version <31094> of  Comodo Internet Security Version<> and confirm it.

Best regards
