file send for virustotal not is part tor browser;
users malicious spread files with name equal files safes and infected PCs the others users careless, for example, It is tactic “reverse engineering” :-TU
I take it no one else who uses tor hasn’t experienced this? I’ve re-downloaded and reinstalled Tor but still have this issue. How long does it take for an issue like this to be resolved i.e investigated confirmed/not confirmed that it’s a false pos? I’m holding off using tor because I do feel this is a false positive but would like some confirmation…
I too had been using tor for many months, only now getting this problem. One thing I did notice between me and you is that I am using a older version of comodo and I have auto update on!?!.. One thing I would be interested in, could you please put your tor.exe through virustotal and feedback results - as of right now it is showing there are 6 programs picking up malware…
I get the same on Virus Total as you, but it is a common issue with Tor going back years. There’s an article on the Project itself: https://support.torproject.org/ with some advice and others all over the web. The Tor project is a Trusted Vendor and the executables are all white listed on install.
As for the CIS Automatic Update; Comodo hasn’t released the newer RC to the update channel yet . . . only they know why. If you want the latest RC, it’s on the Comodo site and the newest Beta with install instructions is here: CIS Beta 188.8.131.5262
