False Positive?


Recommended Posts

Good Morning,

I have developped a small c# application named moondance and I distribute the software via a yahoogroup. One of the users in my group has informed me that I my software has spyware,

This was he's report


Infizierte Dateien:

> d:\Software\moondancesetup.exe (Spyware.Passwords.Gen) -> Quarantined and

deleted successfully.

> d:\Software\moondance_old.exe (Spyware.Passwords.Gen) -> Quarantined and

deleted successfully.


I have deleted the file from the yahoo group whilst I investigate, my software saves the user email password (gmail) so it may send an email automatically as a part of its function, could this possibly be the reason why malware bytes has detected it?

Thanks for the prompt reply,

Nothing special to run the installer, it is "excelsior" seems pretty reliable, I just did a malware scan, cleaned up the files and rebuilt the software and still it is detected by malwarebytes. attached is the installer, the program will not actually run unless you have a specific camera.

Unfortunatly I cannot upload the file to the forum, so here is my dropbox address


Thanks for your help
