my friend earlier today sent me a link over msn which looked like it linked to a Facebook picture but when i clicked it i realised it was an exe file. i closed the link without opening the file almost immediatly, but it still seemed to get through.
could anyone tell me if heur.suspicious@114277585 is a virus or a false positive and also what it could do please.
one last thing im not the best with computers but i always thought that aslong as i didnt open the file even though i clicked on the link i would be fine, could someone tell me if this is ture or false and if true how the virus got through, thanks ;D
I suspect it is malware, but it is hard to know for sure unless you submit it to virustotal ( especially if it was making itself look like a picture but is a exe). It did not get through, what happened is that CIS caught it in ram and protected your computer. Don’t worry.
The file you have received from your friend it’s not a False Positive, so please remove it using Comodo Internet Security.
thanks for the quick reply and for clearing that up for me i was worried i would have to change all my passwords

That person is saying it's "infected", seriously change your passwords
