Trojan-Downloader.Java.OpenStream!IK - false positive?

8 posts in this topic

Hi, I keep getting the above file in my a2 scan results. I don't delete it because it looks like part of the Java program but it's odd that a2 keeps flagging it up - so now I'm guessing it's not a false+. Please advise, thx.

Hi wagesoffear,

1) Posting just the file name or the alleged infection name does not provide any information

The location of the files / precise names of files and/or Registry Entries ; processes, etc. are required. The same applies to the detections names. All that info should be in the saved report produced by a-squared.

2) if you are suspecting FP then submit as described in

Submitting suspected False Positives for analysis

3) Re:

... now I'm guessing it's not a false+...

that is not a matter of guessing

Hi,

I ran CCleaner. I've attached the a2 and Hijackthis logs. I couldn't run ISeeYouXP because my adaware flagged it up as a trojan "win32.trojan.killproc".

Thanks.

Hi wagesoffear,

1) You should create new thread in the "Malware Removal help" section as it was suggested;

I will move it there

2) Ignore flagging of ISeeYouXP. That is False Positive.

Allow it to run

Many security Software will flag such Utilities and different malware removal Tools

{added} Next time if the report by Emsisoft will be requested do not quarantine/delete anything as per instruction

Cookies are harmless and never representing threats. Close all browser section prior to running CCleaner in order to delete cookies before scanning

My regards

The installed version of Java on this computer is out-dated. Install Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 6u20 available from Sun Microsystems.

-----------------------------------------------------------

Using Add or Remove Programs in the Control Panel; uninstall the following:

Java 6 Update 18

Java 6 Update 3

Java 6 Update 5

Java 6 Update 7

-----------------------------------------------------------

Clear your Java Cache. Instructions on how to do so, can be found at http://www.java.com/en/download/help/plugin_cache.xml

-----------------------------------------------------------

Otherwise your logs show no malware.
