Trojan detected in H4mod.exe

Postby FreddieClark » Apr 29 2016, 2:48

My antivirus scan reports Trojan.GenericKD.3148995+(B). after I installed Equilibris. Anyone else see this alert at all ??.

No idea if we have the same versions, but my (3.5Equi, 6.56MB) is having md5sum:

Code: Select all

e7a21f1be3b8aaadd38962a2c669e193


For check you may use WinMD5Free

And it's completely OK.

Never had any trojan or any virus reports with Equi files (using v3.51).
Where did you download it from?

My F-Secure Internet Security reports the same. Equilibris v. 3.51 (H4mod.exe) is being reported as a "Generic Trojan". It seems my F-Secure Deep Guard doesn't trust the mod being that innocent.
Don't worry if things are going badly today. They will be much worse tomorrow.

So, check the md5sum and if it's identical the file is OK and your AV is doing false alarm.

This is not so surprising for mod, the file was downloaded from here.

Got most of the files from the CH site, a few years ago.

It's a false-positive report. The way we change the code is very similar to what viruses and trojans do to infect applications. Smart antiviruses learnt to look deeper, not so smart raise alarm right away.
