Heavier7Strings-1.5.1 update flagged as malware !

Postby avicenne » Sun Jan 13, 2019 10:21 pm

hi,

I downloaded Heavier7Strings-1.5.1 update from http://www.threebodytech.com/updates ( from Newest update download link: https://www.dropbox.com/s/s5ews3tnfmwj3 ... S.exe?dl=0) and avira flagged it as malware after running the installer (Heavier7Strings-1.5.1-programs-retail-en_US.exe) and put it in quarantine
Here is the report :
https://textuploader.com/1aht9

my settings for avira's heuristic of the scan engine are set to High
I hope it's a false positive and, if so, explanations would be appreciated ( what triggered the detection)


edit: I replaced the textuploader report link to a registered account (for deletion possibility), I don't want to unwillingly cause prejudice to the product !

Hi:

The Windows installer of Heavier7Strings is made by Inno Setup, which shall not contain malicious code.
In versions since 1.5, we used VMProtect to protect our binaries from being cracked. It would introduce shuffled codes that are more likely to be identified as malware by anti-virus software.
