Hello,

I have installed PDF reDirect from download.com:
http://www.download.com/3001-6675_4-10539357.html

Antivirus on-line scanner from www.mks.com.pl finds
Worm.HLLM.BlackWorm in
c:\Program Files\PDF reDirect\OSSMTP.dll

I have scanned computer, because there were problems with slow work.
I have read this topic:
http://www.exp-systems.com/forum_exp/forum_posts.asp?TID=146&PN=1

but there is nothing about Worm.HLLM.BlackWorm

Best regards,
Kamil

Hi Kamil,

    PDF reDirect is scanned for viruses (and worms) by myself before being released. The web site "download.com" also scans the files to make sure they are OK.

    I suspect that the scan from www.mks.com.pl is a "false positive". That means that they think there is a problem, even though there is not one. I would recommend you try a different virus scanner such as "Norton", NOD32 (my favorite), or Trend Micro and see if you continue having the report of a problem.

   Please let me know if you continue having difficulties, and I can see what I can do to work with MKS from Poland. However, my Polish is nearly non-existant, so I am not sure that I will be able to resolve the issue with them.

    Thanks for letting me know!

Hi Michel,

Thank you for your quick and "positive" answer.
I scanned PDF reDirect files with
- avast 4.7 for Windows SB 2003
- on-line scanner at www.kaspersky.pl (http://www.kaspersky.pl/virusscanner.html).
- and ClamWin antivirus (http://sourceforge.net/projects/clamwin)
-
None of them did not find virus in PDF reDirect files including OSSMTP.DLL.

I hope you are right that it was "false positive".
Probably I send my previous post to quickly and it was false alarm - I am sorry - I trust MKS Scanner and on last Thursday I was almost sure that I install a trojan in my company.

Best regards,
Kamil

I received a similar warning today.
 
Avira AntiVir reported that OSSTMP.dll "Contains detection pattern of the worm WORM/Israz.86016"

Hi,

   Have you seen the post [here]? It talks about this quite a bit. Basically, some older, out of date, or foreign anti-virus vendors flag this DLL incorrectly.

   However, all of the major anti-virus software such as NOD32, Norton, McAfee say that this file is safe (which it is).

   This DLL is a component I use for the "Pro" version which I purchased from www.ostrosoft.com. If you are using PDF reDirect freeware, you can delete this file: it is used only in the Pro version to add the ability to send your PDF files by e-mail.

    I hope that helps,

Michel

Thanks for the link and the info.  I searched for "worm" and got no hits.  I will delete the file for now, but perhaps you can get Avira to fix their detections.  AntiVir is actually rated as one of the best antivirus programs available here.

Hi,

   Thanks for the update. I contacted Avira last night and submitted a "false positive" report with them. They said that they will investigate and get back to me, hopefully soon.

   Cheers!

Hi,

   Just got a reply from Avira. They reported the package as "clean" [here]. They made no mention of the DLL, so I asked them for more info, and confirmation that they will fix their definition file.

   Cheers!

I just received the following e-mail from Avira. I think this says it all. Smile
----------------------------------------
Dear Sir or Madam,


Thank you for your recent inquiry.

We could not find a virus in the attachment you have sent us.
The alert you have got was a false positive. That false positive will not be longer detected by AntiVir with the current VDF.

Hi!
I had the same problem with a 'not found' virus when I used Avira. It's a good antivirus, but maybe you should try another option too. I recommend Avast, because is the one I'm using now, but you can find useful information about antiviruses comparison and problems here: www.best-antivirus.co
It's a free reviews and downloads site.

Good luck!
