Z-way Windows virus recognized

Post by Geitje »

When trying to install new Z-way for windows beta 3.0.3 or 3.0.4, my virusscanner (Bitdefender) says it contains a Trojan. Also when uploading to Virustotal.com , several scanners find a virus. How can this be?

Z-Way is build on Google V8 that is a JIT compiler of JavaScript. This might be detected as a mutating trojan. But would be nice if you can drop us some reports of those scanners so we can unedrstand what is detected as a trojan.

At least
Kaspersky https://virusdesk.kaspersky.com/#scanresults
and VirusTotal https://www.virustotal.com/gui/url/61a7 ... /community
did not reported anything bad on http://storage.z-wave.me/z-way-server/z ... 4-beta.msi

Or they complain on the installed binary and not on the installer tool?
