Checking if virus or fall positive?


Comodo AV reports viruses even in open-source software or from reputable closed-source software. Although it’s perfectly possible for a virus to have infected them, either on the other end or after downloading them on my PC, I would rather guess those are false positives.

For instance, Comodo AV reported viruses in a sample that comes with the PowerBasic compiler, and in the Blackfin uClinux version of the open-source Gcc compiler:

Generally speaking, how can non experts tell if those are real viruses or just false-positives?

Thank you.
