Pidgin: Kaspersky detecting Trojan.Win32.Swisyn.apog

Kaspersky 11.0.1.400 (KIS) detected Trojan.Win32.Swisyn.apog in several files from Pidgin Portable 2.7.4:

  • buddynote.dll
  • log_reader.dll
  • history.dll
  • idle.dll
  • libaim.dll
  • spellchk.dll
  • Pidgin Portable 2.7.3 is clean (so is the original Pidgin 2.7.4).

    Kaspersky sucks

    I've had bad experiences with it. It's detected WINWORD.exe (microsoft office word 2007) and Windows media player as viruses.

    And... do you really think PortableApps.com distributes apps with viruses?

    I'm not expressing a personal opinion. Just reporting what Kaspesrsky found. Thought it should be of interest to others (regardless whether it’s a true or a false positive).

    False Positive

    Which definitely means it's a false positive and should be reported to your antivirus company.

    Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!
