x86_Microsoft.VC90.CRT

Comodo Antivirus has started flagging the following file as malware on WinXP:

x86_Microsoft.VC90.CRT_1fc8b3b9a1e18e3b_9.0.30729.1_x-ww_6f74963e.manifest

if i download vcredist_x86.exe and scan it, the same dll, contained there, is detected as malware.

Can you confirm that it is a false positive ?

Hello shampoo,

As i said, you can find the file in vcredist_x86.exe at this link:

if you scan vcredist_x86.exe, you get the same alert. The files have the same length.

Hello guys,

This was confirmed to be a False Positive and a fix will be available within v25757 update.
