.Heur.Suspicious@1 - QTTask.exe

After upgrading to QuickTime 7.7.3, Comodo alerted me for C:\Program Files\QuickTime\QTTask.exe program file as sospicious.

Virus Total log is the following:

Is this a false positive?

Thanks in advance.

Dear Erik,

thanks for your support.

I updated to the last version. Previous version was 5.10.

Do I need to take any further steps? How can I check if now the file is secure?



The Comodo Instant Malware Analysis online tool says that QTTask.exe is classified as Suspicious+.

SHA1 is always the same
(SHA1: <234f24bdb1bf04e9c38da19c4b628c5a344d8660>)

The shown alert is the same I had in my Comodo Defense+ log.

So, could you please verify this situation?

Thank you for your support.

Update 2

After having uninstalled QuickTime form my pc, Defense+ does not alert anymore.

I’m sure it’s a false positive. So, please, fix the problem if possible.

Thank you for your support.
