Autoback.exe False Positive

Autoback.exe causes a CAV prompt when it attempts to make a registry backup. This file is part of Erunt and is launched at bootup. It makes a backup copy of the system registry. The file is only detected by CAV when it is launched. CAV doesn’t prompt when manually scanning autoback.exe. I get the prompt when the system boots and autoback.exe attempts the registry backup. A shortcut for autoback.exe is placed in the Startup folder in the Start Menu. Adding autoback.exe to my Exclusions list bypasses the CAV prompt, but I shouldn’t have to have it in my list. Thus, I consider it a false positive. Screenshot and files attached.

You haven’t answered back in this thread, but you may have fixed the FP. I haven’t had a prompt in the last two days. Did you figure out a solution?

We are still encountering a few problems in resolving this issue. When it will be fully solved we will let you know.

OK, thanks. I’ll try to be more patient. :-\

Just keeping you up-to-date. Today was the first time I received a prompt since my last post. As usual, I got the prompt at bootup.

The false positive has been fixed. Please upgrade to virus DB 2402 of CIS 3.12.111745.560 and confirm.

As a matter of fact, I haven’t received a prompt since upgrading to 3.12.111745.560. If I get one in the future, I’ll post back. Thanks for looking into this!
