Lynx.exe from Lynx System Developers flagged as Malware.Heuristic.1006


Recommended Posts


Tonight I installed FinishLynx 12.00 from https://www.finishlynx.com/download/software-downloads/finishlynx-software/FinishLynx-12.00.exe

The web page I downloaded it from is https://www.finishlynx.com/product/software/finishlynx-results-software/

The resulting C:\Lynx\Lynx.exe that was extracted caused Malwarebytes to flag it as Malware.Heuristic.1006 when I first tried to run it after install.

I suspect this is a False-Positive (because I have Malwarebytes' paranoid settings enabled).


At VirusTotal (VT), I uploaded Lynx.exe and VT reported "No security vendors and no sandboxes flagged this file as malicious"

However, after I uploaded the installer (FinishLynx-12.00.exe) to VT, 4/69 scanners at VT flagged FinishLynx-12.00.exe as follows...

Bkav Pro: W32.AIDetect.malware2

SecureAge APEX: Malicious

NANo-Antivirus: Trojan.Win32.Inject.duswok"

VBA32: Trojan.Inject




direct-cpu-clock-access    overlay    peexe    runtime-modules


At Jotti's malware scan, only one scanner (VBA32) flagged FinishLynx-12.00.exe as Trojan.Inject


Size: 3.31MB (3,465,946 bytes) 

Type:PE32 executable (GUI) Intel 80386, for MS Windows, Nullsoft Installer self-extracting archive

Please advise after you investigate this.

Thank you.
