    Default Packed.Win32.Katusha.b - False Positive? (*Update* - Confirmed by Kaspersky)

    *Update 2 (18/03/2009 16:59)*: Downloaded the most recent Anti-virus updates (DAT file version 980560943) and ZoneAlarm no longer detects this file as malware.

    *Update (18/03/2009 13:55)*: Received email from Kaspersky confirming that the detection was indeed a false positive and that it would be fixed in the next update.

    After updating my Anti-virus\Anti-spyware definitions this morning ZoneAlarm detected the following during a scan:

    Packed.Win32.Katusha.b was found in C:\WINDOWS\assembly\NativeImages_v2.0.50727_32\Mic rosoft.Transacti#\1820d6a012fc0e16c3e1d29d973cd2d0 \Microsoft.Transactions.Bridge.Dtc.ni.dll on 18/03/2009 11:18:22

    This file was detected as a threat on both of my computers and I believe (if it is legitimate) it is part of Microsoft's .NET Framework. I uploaded the file to VirusTotal.com and it is only detected as malware by Kaspersky. I have sent the file in question to Kaspersky for further analysis. I was just wondering if anyone else has had this issue and if I should take any further steps.



    ZoneAlarm Security Suite version 8.0.298.000
    Anti-virus engine version 6.0.2.678,DAT file version 980550785
    Anti-spyware engine version 5.0.209.0,DAT file version 01.200903.5545

    Same here on March 18th regarding Packed.Win32.Katusha.b showing up as a High threat ..... it's in Quarantine right now.
    If the Lab confirms this as a False Positive, do I simply restore it from Quarantine?

    That is what I am wondering as well. My laptop just popped up with the same issue.
