    Default Z.A. possible false positive?

    Hello,

    This is my first posting and hopefully I am under the correct thread.

    I recently completed a scan in the "normal" mode and Z.A. detected trojan.win32.xih.ajc

    I have not been able to find any info. on this particular trojan through other virus lists either and so I am wondering if it may be a false positive?

    I also scanned with Malwarebytes A.M., SuperAntiSpyware, and Hitman Pro. 3.5 and they did not detect this.

    I probably should not have done this risky action so soon, but I went ahead and restored it from quarantine and tried scanning again. The other scanner did not detect it, and this time Z.A. did not detect it either. False positive or too new to tell? Is there any other action(s) I should take?

    Thank you for your time, and hello to all members/moderators!

    Hi Guru GeorgeV!

    Ah,I just saw the posting for this after I sent this message. However when Z.A scanned again it did not find the trojan after I restored it. Of course it may be waiting to execute itself later on also I suppose...
