This is confusing. I downloaded a small program called Analog Clock 2.2 from Cnet's download.com & my AVG AntiSpyware 220.127.116.11 is saying it contains Backdoor.Hupigon.cql. Avast 4.7 Home Edition calls it Win32:Trojan-gen. However, neither AVG Free 7.5.446 nor
ZoneAlarm Security Suite 7.0.337.000 (Kaspersky 6.0)
are finding it at all. If it IS a trojan, then why is AVG's AntiSpyware product finding it but their AntiVirus program is not? Additionally, I have run MS Malicious Software Removal Tool V1.28, Windows Defender 1.1.1593.0, ZA AntiSpyware 7.0, Spybot S&D 1.4, AdAware SE 1.06r1 & XoftSpy all with negative results. There are user reviews on the Analog Clock download page reporting the Backdoor.Hupigon.cql finding along with less specific spyware allegations but there are also other reviews claiming it's clean. I like the look of Analog Clock (although it's somewhat buggy & lacking in functionality) & would like to keep it if it doesn't actually contain any malware (it's in quarantine presently). My major issues, however, are:
1. If it does actually contain a trojan, I would really like to report it to Cnet so they can remove it from their site.
2. If it does actually contain a trojan, I would like to alert AVG and ZA/Kaspersky that their
virus scanners are not detecting it.
3. If it doesn't actually contain a trojan, I would like to report the false positives to Avast & AVG AntiSpyware.
Does anyone have experience in reporting this kind of stuff? Because I have no clue who to write to.
PS - ZAISS is the eval version and it's presently my full-time security choice. I only run the other programs for on-demand scanning and their startup entries are disabled.
