AVG Found virus in file senddoc.exe

I installed the latest version of Libre Office Portable (4.4.2) today and immediately AVG identified the following file as containing a virus:

\PortableApps\LibreOfficePortable\App\libreoffice\program\senddoc.exe

This file was dated 2014-02-27 at 16:22

AVG reported the threat as Win32/DH.F27202FC{bQ}

AVG's reference to this virus can be seen here

I cannot tell if this is a false positive but I've deleted the entire folder to be safe and rolled back to the previous version of Libre Office.

Report It

It's another AVG/TrendMicro false positive. They have them pretty frequently, with nearly every release. You can verify it with the VirusTotal report on the file here: https://www.virustotal.com/en/file/f1fbf6b52c821a35b6915275ceb07f86ffd77...

Anything that's actually a virus will be identified as such by all the big guys: Symantec, Kaspersky, McAfee, Microsoft, etc. Instead, you'll note that they all report it as clean.

Please report it to AVG so they can fix their bug. They usually fix it within a week.

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

AVG Fixed It

AVG has fixed their bug but TrendMicro has not. I've submitted it as a false positive to TrendMicro to speed them along.
