Lot of False Positives

Recommended Posts

False positives by Anti-malware are really annoying.

This morning CyberGhostVPN client detected as Trojan.

Here is the report.

This made me to uninstall VPN client unnecessarily.

I have posted a thread in CyberGhostVPN (SAD-Forum) about this.


And A-Squared is the only Security Software to erupt a False Positive.


This actually killed my time and Anti-Malware took a long time to revoke its false positive.

Please look into this.

thanks for your report. I can confirm that this is in fact a false positive. I removed the signature and published a revised signature update. It should be available within the next 5 minutes.
