False Positive from enterprise level anti-viruses
Selvec - July 2, 2012 - 7:44pm
Recently I installed Portableapps.exe to my pen drive which I use at work. Its very useful for my job as the app's it allows me to run don't leave any mark on the local registry or HD. However, recently IT's Anti-virus marked the base .exe file as a possible threat. This is of course a false positive, however it could cause issues for anyone else using this in a business environment.
Threat detected: Suspicious Behaviour: HIPS/RemFileMod-002
I have a picture sent from IT, but can't upload at work so I'll have to do this later.
Could anyone please enlighten me as to why our anti-virus would pick up a false positive from this program?
