Title: ESET has a false positiv on the "Advanced System Tweaker Setup"
Post by: rrussell2244 on February 02, 2016, 10:04:39 AM
ESET has a false positiv on the "Advanced System Tweaker Setup"
C:\Users\Robert\Downloads\tweaking.com_advanced_system_tweaker_setup.exe » INDIGOROSE » %AppFolder%\add-ons\Windows XP Only\Disable  Functions\Personalized Menus - Favorites - Disable.tweak - probably a variant of VBS/Seeker.R trojan
C:\Users\Robert\Downloads\tweaking.com_advanced_system_tweaker_setup.exe » INDIGOROSE » %AppFolder%\add-ons\Windows XP Only\Enable Functions\Personalized Menus - Favorites - Enable.tweak - probably a variant of VBS/Seeker.R trojan

I have submitted it to ESET.

VirusTotal reports 4 out of 53:
ByteHero    Virus.Win32.Part.a    20160115
ClamAV    Win.Trojan.Generickd-4331    20160115
ESET-NOD32    probably a variant of VBS/Seeker.R    20160115
Ikarus    Trojan.VBS.Seeker    20160115

EDIT:
The above setup file was downloaded from MajorGeeks.
I downloaded from "Direct Download" and ESET showed the file as CLEAN?

False positives are more common than not and in this case it is a false positive :)

It is a false positive, so they most likly had already updated their virus defs by the time you checked the other file :-)

You can always confirm the files are the same by using a program like hashtab and getting the hash values like md5 of the files. If they are different even by 1 byte the md5 hash will be different.
