ZA advanced heuristic scan --> False positives?
After upgrading to Win7 and reinstalling ZAES, when I went to download and reinstall Steam and MySirius (used for Sirius Stilleto sat radios) for indicated that they were infected. I tried the search feature here but did not see this as an existing topic or post.
ZAES says SteamInstall.msi is "zombie" software and is malicious.
source file is http://storefront.steampowered.com/d...eamInstall.msi
ZAES says SiriusStudioSetup.exe "creates new executable files on your system that can launch malicious behavior" and is malicious.
source file is http://download.sirius.speedera.net/...tudioSetup.exe
Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.
Re: False positives? Steam and MySirius
You are scanning with ZA HEURISTICS, false positives may be normal. A malicious behavior under a virtual environment (sandbox) may not mean always a malicious file. If the source of the file is trustful then you should be safe.
See here below some example, reference to behavior is given, many legitimate software can perfom suspicious actions but not been malicious. Check the source of file and ensure is trustworthy.
What the ZA advanced scan does ?
Which kind of messages you get while scanning?
Why it is safe?
