Hitman Pro detects Registry Backup as a Trojan
« on: September 01, 2012, 08:44:47 PM »
Someone who downloaded RegBack wrote the above.  Could it be a false positive?  http://www.tweaking.com/content/page/registry_backup.html

Looking forward to your reply Shane.

Sure is a false positive. :smiley:

All they need to do is sumbit it to their AV and they will see it is a false positive and update their virus def's to fix it :wink:

You will see that a few lesser known AV's flag it with the "GEN" which stand for generic. Which is almost always a false positive. You will notice none of the bigger well known AV's flag it :wink:

That's what I thought.  It was posted on Wilders Scurity Forum.  I did already make a post on Wilders (Hitman Pro) thread regarding this.  Just waiting their reply. 

PS: I downloaded RegBack, scanned with Avast! free and MBAM free and these scans were clean.

Thanks Shane for getting back to me so fast!

This is the reply I got from the author of HitmanPro:

On VirusTotal, the detection of the setup file tweaking.com_registry_backup_setup.exe is 2/42, both false positives (by Antiy-AVL and ByteHero):

The detection of the main executable TweakingRegistryBackup.exe is 0/42:

You can safely use the program.
