Drivers detected as virus

Postby n5zap » Thu Aug 31, 2017 9:17 pm

I am trying to download and install SDRUno 1.13 and the API drivers version 2.10 and Windows defender is detecting both of them as a virus. I know the normal guidance here is to turn off virus protection, but does anyone know if these files are good or not? I ask because when I installed SDRUno 1.13 under VMWare I got several blue screens with "KMODE Exception Not Handled" which is a pretty serious bug.

Do these things work on VMWare Fusion 8.85 on macOS Sierra? Has anyone been using them successfully?

Same here. Windows Defender quarantined both the Uno installer and the XTIO Installer on August 30. Reported to be infected with Trojan:Win32/Rundas.B . The files have been stored on my PC for a couple months. Likely a false positive. Not surprising since Microsoft can't even keep a PC's clock updated with the correct time.

Really strange. I have SDRplay_SDRuno_Installer_1.13.exe and SDRplay_ExtIO_Installer_1.0_2.exe on my PC for months. But Windows Defender never found anything strange. I probed the files manually right now with the latest virus definitions for Windows Defender: No infection found!

No problems here. Windows defender is kept up to date but hasn't reported anything. Win 8 Enterprise.

I had the same issue last week. I put it through VirusTotal and only 3 of the umpteen detection sets it uses flagged it as a trojan, and all 3 were different trojans. None of those were the same malware Defender listed. Must just be a bit of the code that's similar to something widely used in malware, and some of the virus detection algorithms aren't smart enough to tell the difference.

This is normal business.
Many radio softwares (commercial or freeware) are reported evil by a couple of virus engines when you upload them to Virustotal. Some virus engines change their mind daily. Today a software is benign, tomorrow exactly the same software is evil all of a sudden. Next week it is good again.
It's the same old story.

I agree with DanubeBCL. This is a false positive.
