Subject: [Clamav-users] false positives for
Recently, the scan has been giving me:

sda1/Program Files/Microsoft Office/Office12/EXCEL.EXE:
W32.Virut.Gen.D-163 FOUND
sda1/Program Files/Microsoft Office/Office12/excelcnv.exe:
W32.Virut.Gen.D-163 FOUND
sda1/WINDOWS/SoftwareDistribution/Download/754e3b95d1b56e045c85bd49529d92b4/xlconv.cab:
W32.Virut.Gen.D-163 FOUND
sda1/WINDOWS/SoftwareDistribution/Download/488b87313a382b81238c79301c751bbd/excel.cab:
W32.Virut.Gen.D-163 FOUND
sda1/WINDOWS/Installer/789ce7.msp: W32.Virut.Gen.D-163 FOUND
sda1/WINDOWS/Installer/789cfb.msp: W32.Virut.Gen.D-163 FOUND

Since a full scan with Windows defender doesn't detect this issue and
http://virusscan.jotti.org/ shows that 789cfb.msp is virus free with all
programs except clam, I think this is a false positive.

see http://wsms.wikiplanet.com/mediawiki/index.php/Clamscan for
additional details.

Please advise.

Thanks, George
