    Default Trojan-Proxy.Win32.Horst.aae - new false positive

    I checked in all the major av databases, and they all came up with nothing!
    ZAISS wiped out the files that said they were infected, and ZAISS gave me no option to ignore either!
    (This is funny, sorta)I tried to restore the files, and as soon as I did Zaiss would add them back to Quar.
    Zaiss was faster than me LOL!

    Hiya Fax!
    It is in the virus quarantine. I managed to restore all but 1, then shut my machine down.
    While it was down I redid those files and now the lone 1 file is still in quarantine,
    and ZAISS is not trying to remove the other files, at THIS moment.
    When it scans again tomorrow, who knows.
    These files have been on my machine for months and months, btw!

    Ok, thanks...Go to the advanced option of the antivirus/antispyware tab --> Automatic treatment and set it to --> "Alert me: Do no treat automatically"This way next time is detected it will offer you the option of "ignore always".[Remember to put it back to the default when you have done.]Write an e-mail to newvirus at kaspersky dot com. Subject: false positives. Attached a zip archive with the file in question and password protect the zip. Include the password in the e-mail. Explain that the filesare detected as Trojan-Proxy.Win32.Horst.aae and that this may be a false positive.If it is confirmed are false positives they will fix... they are quite fast usually. Some hours or one day.Cheers,Fax
