False Positive: WhiteSmoke 2011


Recommended Posts

When doing the quick scan with WhiteSmoke 2011 installed, I receive almost 1000 results. This is a legitimate program, used to help people write business, personal, creative, and normal works.

It is NOT the WhiteSmoke virus, which installs a toolbar, or the TDSS backdoor trojans.

Can you please whitelist these, so they do not appear on my scans?

Thanks much!

Poor affiliate control (I assume) has led to a situation where many users being infected by TDSS are also infected with whitesmoke at the same time due to a combined malware package.

We will look into this again of course but this is what we found last time.
