Recently we have started receiving complaints from Excelsior JET evaluation users about virus detection in certain binaries included with Excelsior JET. Specifically, the file
triggers anti-virus systems by Avira and Kaspersky Lab.
A quick check with building the file from source code has shown that it’s false positive virus detection. We have contacted the vendors of the anti-virus systems and got the results confirmed with promises to fix false detection in future versions of their products.
Here go the confirmations.
E-mail from Kaspersky Lab:
False positive virus detection [KLAN-65739172]
Sorry, it was a false detection. It will be fixed in the next update.
Thank you for your help.
Best wishes, Pavel Firsov.
