False positive: HFS

Hello, i’m the author of the open source software at HFS ~ HTTP File Server
I found some people saying BOClean detected HFS as malware

Can you fix this false positive please?
Useful info may be: HFS is a specialized http server, and the exe is packed with UPX.
Thank you!

Thank you :slight_smile:
should i expect a further reply here, privately, or nothing?

Once it is proven as a FP the fix is generally included in the next available BOClean update. If I receive a private notification or any further info, I’ll repost here.

It wasnt a false positive. It was only detected under “RSK” category, but we have removed the detection for the moment to give it further review.

Thanks for reporting though. Much appreciated.


Thank you for your attention.

I guess RSK is not clear enough for some users.
I think the problem is on the “usability” side, because people misunderstands your warning.
The message could be rephrased.
Also, a “read more” button could be added, with suggestions on how to recognize a real risk.
Forgive any ingenuous suggestion by me, because I’m not a BOclean user and don’t know your GUI.

OK to close this topic guys?

What is “RSK” ??? Does it stand for “RISK” :-\

Greetz, Red.
