Problems with Sophos Antivirus

Hi people,

I have used Open Office Portable from a USB pen at work for a long while with no problems.

Today the antivirus program installed,

Sophos Antivirus Version 6-5-7
Threat Detection Data 4:19

started identifying

\openofficeportable\App\openoffice\program\libxml2.dll

as an file infected with virus Mal/Behav-128

Anyone else have the same problems??? What can we do about it???

Thanks

Steve K

I went and checked!!!

Checked the file with VirusTutal.com 's online scanner and it didn't find a problem, even with Sophos!!!

I will go back to the IT section at work and see if their version of Sophos is working okay...!!!!!!!!!!!!

Double-Check

As is clearly stated on the support page, always double-check that a given file is found to be a virus by other antivirus programs before reporting it. There are links on the page to assist with this. As is usually the case, you're looking at a false positive. There's no need to let us know about it. Just be sure to let your antivirus provider know about their screwup.

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