    Default Zone Alarm and Hugin.exe from SourceForge

    Zone Alarm said that hugin.exe the panorama stitcher from SourceForge, has win32.kme in it, and quarantined it.
    so, i removed the whole hugin program.. and downloaded again from SourceForge, but still ZA says that hugin.exe has win32.kme in it.
    So.. why is that, and what can be done..?
    i can just release hugin and ignore ZA,
    but it would be better if i knew what the cause was, after all SourceForge would not last long ifsuch a virus could use it..
    what does ZA suggest? what does anyone else suggest?
    i dont want to have to free updates from ZA because of a false alarm..



    Operating System:Windows XP Pro
    Software Version:8.0
    Product Name:ZoneAlarm Internet Security Suite

    Hi!upload the file to www.virustotal.comto cross check its a false positive.Check if Kaspersky detects it (AV engine in ZA).Then if you think its a false positive report it to Kaspersky. A malware analyst will review it and confirm to you.Send the file in a password protected zip to newvirus at kaspersky dot com. Subject: false positive. Include password in the e-mail.Cheers,Fax

    File hugin-0.7.0_win32-setup.exe received on 02.25.2009 03:09:33 (CET)
    Current status: finished Result: 0/37 (0.00%)
    i guess that means its a false alarm.. since it had already been considered.. i cannot be the first.. so..
    i am going to use hugin as i have done since 2008.
    SourceForge is not a mickey mouse resource.

    Hi!if you had 0 detection than you have a problem with your ZA.It is corrupted or does not update... you should have the same results as the kaspersky listed under virustotal.com.Was the detection by the antivirus portion or the antispyware portion?In other words it is quarantined in the antivirus section or antispyware section?Cheers,Fax
