MB started flagging two files that have 2010 dates


Recommended Posts

MB's AI flagged two files today as malware that have 2010 dates and I've had for three years. The files are VDICMDRV.DLL & VDREMOTE.DLL which are part of the VirtualDub program. MB is also the only service to flag these files on VirusTotal. I think these detections are false positives. Any comments?

Thank you for the information. I updated MB, deleted the two history items for these files, and reran MB. It did not flag the two files as malicious. Was this the correct way to recheck the files? I ask because on the VirusTotal web site MB still shows the files as malicious. MB on VirusTotal shows Malware.AI.1691164579 for the VDREMOTE.DLL file and Malware.AI.2474916793 for the VDICMDRV.DLL file.

Our engine format and configuration in VirusTotal is different than our consumer and corporate products’ default configuration. In VirusTotal we use a command-line engine with different configuration and detection techniques/heuristics which might detect more than the commercial product. There are also false-positive suppression mechanisms in the commercial product which are not present in the command-line engine in VirusTotal.
This will eventually fix itself in Virustotal as well, as we don't have control over this.
