CPM detects Adobe Flash installer as a virus
« on: August 19, 2012, 05:07:52 PM »
Hi,
CPM is reporting the latest installer of Adobe Flash Player as being malware.
I have isntalled it from the web. Don't know if the offline installer is also reported as malware.

Could you upload it to Virus Total, drop the url of the report here so we can see what the other scanners think?

I have seen CPM do the same thing. Upon fresh download of Adobe, there will be a pop up from CPM stating that Malware Installation has been detected, then it will go away, and the Adobe Flash will download like normal. I have tested this a few times, and it does it every time, although afterwards, i have scanned the system with many tools, and find nothing.

Here is the VT link

I have attached the message that CPM displays. It is a False Positive from Comodo

Please submit it to Comodo for being a false positive as it could be one.

You can submit it in AV False Positive/Negative Detection Reporting board following How to report False Positives - Please read this before submitting !
