WideFS 6.77 - VIRUS??

Recommended Posts

FYI - I Just downloaed WideFS 6.77 - When I went to extract it, my virus checker (COX Security suite) said there was a malware virus - maximus detected in the fsclient.exe

1. There is no version 6.77 of WideFS.

2. My ZIPS contain no such program as "fsclient.exe", so it seems very likely that you are actually downloading the wrong package entirely, one by someone else.

3. All my products are now signed with a GlobalSign certificate and are guaranteed against interference and virus infection provided the signature is correct. Just right click on any of them, select properties then see if the signature tab says it is all okay. If it isn't, do not use it.

4. Most of my products are also encrypted and compressed, producing in them random looking bit patterns which some anti-virus programs may occasionally identify as a virus. This is always a false indication, and the virus updating authority for the package should be informed of this mis-indication so they can make their checking more accurate.
