Trojan detection on windows x64 .exe installer

Post by Teuton » Tue Feb 04, 2020 4:58 pm

Greetings,

Today I tried to scan qbittorent .exe installer file for viruses using Virustotal and also used some sandbox scan webpage on the internet and on Virustotal i get a detection by Jiangmin 'Generic.Trojan' , while on the sandbox one it said it's malicious. Can somebody confirm to me that those were false-positives or what ??

I will post the virustotal scan link
https://www.virustotal.com/gui/file/f82 ... /detection

P.S Sorry if I made a mistake and put this topic on windows group but since i scanned the Windows installer i thought this was appropriate. Thanks :)

False positive, nothing to worry about.
I mean you can see from the list that no other product picked it up, only some noname, nobrand thing. You should only worry about something when you see several hits and from known brands. Even then, you may choose to ignore those. Like if you have a security software, it might show up as "malicious" by some AVs.
