Old WYSIWYG Web-Editor Kompozer program - Malware.Heuristic.1001?


Recommended Posts

WYSIWYG Web-Editor Kompozer is an old program and don't run as App on new only 64 bit Macs in Mac version, it's only a 32 bit program.

So I installed them as Windows App with Crossover. Before I test the downloaded files on VirusTotal

For the kompozer-0.8b3.de.win32.zip ver  I get this warning Jiangmi  Trojan.Generic.gesgj

So I installed the kompozer-0.8b3.de.win32.exe version (no warning in VirusTotal) in Crossover. After installing zipped the installed KompoZer 'windows' directory and test them with VirusTotal.

Now I get this warnings:

Jiangmin  Trojan.Generic.gesgj

Malwarebytes Malware.Heuristic.1001

How I could upload this zipped file for test to you?

PS: The Linux version kompozer-0.8b3.de.gcc4.2-i686.tar.gz   get this warning  Bkav Pro VEX14F4.Webshell

My Mac: M1 Mac Mini, Monterey 12.5.1

Nice greetings

but I think VirusTotal use them!

The engine format and configuration in VirusTotal is different than the consumer and corporate products’ default configuration. In VirusTotal Malwarebytes uses 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.

Crossover (wine engine) are runable on different OS, as MacOS, Linux, ChromeOS

A Windows virus running by Crossover (with wine engine) have access to the user files of the host system (MacOS, Linux, ChromeOS). But have no access not to the host OS self.

I think an ransomware encryption virus running on wine could encrypt all user files.

I am aware, this discussion is now somewhat 'academic' - an 'Evil windows.exe' could very well 'edit' the user directory mapped via drive letter in. In my case mapped via drive letter 'Y'.

I run only some windows programs that could not compromised via internet. But I test this installable binaries carefully before I install them in Crossover.
