DSynchronized detected as virus. Again.

Here is summary of findings from Windows Security...

Details:This program is dangerous and executes commands from an attacker.

Not the first time. It would be interesting to find out what exactly caused hopefully false positive.

You can verify false positives yourself

On the app's page just under the download button there is the Antivirus Scan link (here is the one for DSynchronize).

That page includes a link directly to VirusTotal for the current version.

Reported as malware by 4 AV's

Reported as malware by 4 AV's on virustotal.

Here's a sandbox analysis of the app as well:

I'll bet it's this triggering the false positives: "Shell_TrayWnd" (Taskbar window class may be used to inject into explorer with the SetWindowLong method) and "DSynchronize.exe" searching for class "Shell_TrayWnd"

I think this is how DSynchronize is trying to create a systray icon in the taskbar.
