W32/Virut.AI!Generic virus detected in LV2009_ENG_32.exe

Recommended Posts

OK, I think this is a false alarm but I I think this needs to be investigated.

I downloaded LV2009_ENG_32.exe from the standard download and evaluate LabVIEW link


However when I run the downloaded file "LV2009_ENG_32.exe" through F-PROT virus scanner I get the following virus detected


See the following report generated by F-Prot

I've scanned the file through AVG but that particular variant of the virus doesn't appear in AVG's database.

I've tested this on a clean uninfected machine, can someone else verify this if possible?

If NI could also just confirm this is a false alarm as well

It quarantined an INI file? Definitely a false alarm ... though how it came to be recognized as a virus is perplexing.

Yeah, definitely

but it seemed to have issue with this file as well.
