Comodo updater virus/pup/false positive?
« on: May 31, 2014, 09:18:35 AM »
A day or two ago, Avast suddenly flipped out and quarantined a few Comodo Dragon files. i *think* this was when dragon was updating itself to 33.1, but I'm not sure.
It quarantined a few files, and then prompted to run a boot time scan (which i did) and which found a few other comodo dragon related viruses/pups.

Namely:

.../appdata/local/temp/UpdateCheckerSetup.exe    Win32:Somoto-J [PUP]
https://www.virustotal.com/en/file/2fe31207fa8084ecbfc453d068a69c51b8de54b89425cdca061eb71d9b5d82b8/analysis/1401541621/
(11 of 52 say virus)

and
c:/windows/temp/dragon_setup.exe   Win32:Dropper-Gen [drp]
and
../appdata/comodo/dragon/User Data/default/file system/002/t/00/00000000    Win32:Somoto-M [PUP]

So I'm wondering if these are false positives, or if the installer that comodo uses has a bad reputation (PUP is potentially unwanted, not exact virus, right?) or if my system got infected in some way?

It's likely a false positive form Avast. Please submit it to Avast as false positive and await their judgment.
