False positives with QT (5.9.3)
I get new "Virus blocked" messages almost daily with F-Secure. They are always coming from my Qt folder. I downloaded Qt from the official qt website.
Today it is QMLLINT.EXE - F-Secure detected a virus named Application:W32/Generic.687143bc9d!Online
Funny, when checking with VirusTotal, F-Secure isn't listed as one of the scanners that detects something...
Thanks for the reply. I did it for one of the executeable and got following reply: "
Our analysis has found that this particular file that you submitted is not harmful. Our security products have been updated to identify it as clean."
Problem is that I still get messages daily for the other executeable in that folder. There are dozends of EXEs and DLLs in that folder.
Is there a solution where I don't need to report every single file?

Actually, it does. On the third tab in Virustotal (Zusätzliche Informationen) you can see this detection: F-Secure Deepguard: Suspicious:W32/Malware!Online
This is likely a general logic problem in Deepguard technology and F-Secure should fix its product, instead of telling customers to create folder exclusion.

If I understand correctly from initial post "F-Secure detected a virus named...", the detections are done by AV, not DG.
By the way, it is possible to submit several problematic files together, in one archive. The file size limit is 30Mb.
Sorry, but exclusions are NO solution to false positives!
they are only a temporary workaround.1 1Like
"The workaround is to add this folder to file scanning exclusions."
Actually this doesn't seem to work for me. I still get "virus blocked" windows daily. When looking at the excluded elements I saw they were empty again. Perhaps this is something managed by our admin? I'm not sure.
I think it would be better to have a general fix for these false positives...
