Finding malware on latest version

Trojan:Win32/Varpes.N!cl is being detected in UpdateGenerater.exe by Windows Defender's latest update.
Don't know why, just letting you know what it's doing to me. :o

Virus scanners do have a notoriously bad track record about software written in the AutoIt! language. In case you did download from here, it is with highest probability a False Positive.

Please report it as a false positive to MS, too.

Same issue for Windows Defender under new Anniversary Update build 14393.10

It keeps deleting UpdageGenerator.exe over and over.

Most annoying.

But I can't do anything about it (see http://download.wsusoffline.net/wsusoff ... stotal.pdf).

Ich denke, die Virenscanner stolpern mal wieder darüber, dass UpdateGenerator.exe und UpdateInstaller.exe mit UPX gepackt sind.

I have reported it to MS as a FALSE POSITIVE. I hope those MS security guys to be aware of it.
