Virex False Positives

Send Article to a Friend

Virex users may wish to use another virus-checker until Microcom fixes a problem with the User Definable Virus (UDV) feature. It appears that it incorrectly identifies some files as being infected with the CODE 252 virus. Microcom plans to correct the problem in Virex 3.8.

According to Microcom, in the cases where Virex reported false positives, there have been multiple UDVs entered. To avoid the problem, you can remove all other UDVs. Although Microcom claims that this method should work, false positives may still occur. Do note that this affects the UDV feature only and does not compromise Virex's normal detection and repair abilities.
