    Default Backdoor.Hupigon.cql

    This is confusing. I downloaded a small program called Analog Clock 2.2 from Cnet's & my AVG AntiSpyware 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.

    Thanks Fax

    Excellent reply and awsome links.

    Actually, you have to install the program for it to show up. The file is AnalogClock.exe.

    I don't know how to format this to make it look good like you did, but these are the results.:

    Thanks again

    You're welcome...Interesting, only few detects it and with generic signature... sounds like a false positive by the few AV engine...Well, to be sure... just zip "AnalogClock.exe", and password protect the zip, send it to, subject: possible trojan. Explain in the email that AVAST, Ewido, etc.. detects this fileas a trojan/backdoor and see what KAV experts says (include password of the zip in the e-mail). You could also include the link to the installer....Cheers,Fax

    Well I didn't want to bug Kaspersky with it (pun unintended), but AVG/Ewido confirmed it was a false positive and say they will correct on next database update. I also emailed Avast and Fortinet.
