how do I know...

Recommended Posts

Hello tuckeroo,

That is a bit of a tricky question. :) One thing you can always try is upload the detected file to an online scanner like www.virustotal.com. If the file is only being detected by one or two scanners, then the chances are its a false-positive. Another thing to keep in mind is the source. If you know you downloaded a file from a trusted source and it is all of a sudden flagged, then this also could mean it is a false positive. If you're in doubt about a detected object you can always post in the False positives forum so we can take a closer look.
