View Full Version : Winamp Contains Virus ?????
20th August 2005, 05:53
My virus scanner just detected winamp as Backdoor.Win32.Bifrose.D. I know for a fact it cant be a false positive. I get the same thing for limewire. Can someone please tell me this.

It's a False Positive... Limewire is Clean too... What Virus scanner is it??

Limewire is not clean like it says it is. It comes with webp2p and i really doubt bitdefender will give out false positives. Come on.

which virus scanner?
what does the report say exactly?

Winamp does not contain a virus. But for some reason a few virus scanners tend to give false-positives on NSIS Installers. And there is no such thing as a 100% accurate virus scanner. There will always be false positives.

different spyware and virus scanners are picky about different things. just know that none of them are right all the time

"i really doubt bitdefender will give out false positives"
There's a reference there to one of the filenames involved being pxwma.dll
%System%\pxwma.dll is part of the Sonic Burning/Ripping Engine and is a totally legit file. Therefore, I suggest you report this to the makers of BitDefender asap :/
