EraserDrop Post Official Release...

I'm curious, have there been any problem reports to the site admins or anyone else about EraserDrop and the whole AutoIt / antivirus false positive issues since its official release?

EraserDropPortable.exe Scans clean at VT

And Only McAfee + Artemis has a problem with the installer...

But I think if there was an issue, the forum would show it...

LOL, McAfee is a joke. And

LOL, McAfee is a joke. And the installer is PA.c code, not mine. Thanks for checking it out.

Scans Inside

McAfee scans inside the installer (it understands LZMA compression) and is probably having an issue with something inside.

Wrong File

You're scanning the wrong file. EraserDropPortable.exe is the NSIS launcher and scans clean, as expected. The actual EraserDrop bits do not:

EraserDrop.exe (which is the AutoIT exe) had 6 false positives during the last VirusTotal scan from a few months ago. Currently, Fortinet lists it as PossibleThreat:

I don't think I've ever seen this scan completely clean, there is always at least one false positive for it.

Eraser.dll had 1 false positive during the scan near launch. Currently, it has none:

gdiplus.dll has a false positive in McAfee last month (probably due to UPX compression, not AutoIT), but is currently clean:

network drive support?

Did the mapped network drive wiping feature make it into the latest version?

Contrary to what was said

Contrary to what was said above, the network drive wiping feature was never added. I finally have a need to use it and it's not there. I uninstalled AutoIt yesterday so someone is plotting against me...
