    AVG flags ZoneAlarm as malware



    &quot;Grisoft, makers of AVG antivirus, on Wednesday released a new update addressing a false positive in another security product.

    On Tuesday, AVG users reported desktops warnings that their desktop was infected with something called Trojan Agent r.CX. Some files within zlsSetup_70_483_000_en[1].exe, a compressed file containing dormant set-up files for Check Point's ZoneAlarm, apparently set off the alarm. The ZoneAlarm user forum soon filled with concerned users.

    Grisoft did not respond to a request for comment.

    Laura Yecies, vice president and general manager of Check Point's ZoneAlarm consumer division said, &quot;as soon as Check Point learned that AVG's recent antivirus update was mistakenly flagging a ZoneAlarm file as a virus, we contacted AVG and they issued an update within hours that corrected the problem. AVG users will automatically get the update that corrects the issue.&quot;<hr>NaiveMelody NYC 10-14-08 - Life During Wartime - Talking Heads
