False Threat on networkminer.exe?

I downloaded networkminer.exe from SourceForge and webroot appears to think it's a Threat of some kind.  As far as I know it's just a tool for analyzing web traffic.  It thinks the threat is Win32.LocalInfect.2, the googling of which only returns 6 results.

I also downloaded a game some kids at the hackerspace wrote in http://scratch.mit.edu/ and it also detected it as a threat, something else Win32....

Re: False Threat on networkminer.exe?

Hello leeand00!

 

Can you kindly open a support ticket here https://www.webrootanywhere.com/servicewelcome.asp? describing your issue. It is the fastest way to get solved it. You can also use the "Submit a File" functionality available in WSA under System Tools. However, if you put in a ticket, Webroot support department will investigate and reply straightaway. If you submit the file, those requests are handled differently and you will not receive a response.

 

In the meantime, if you are absolutely sure it is a false positive, you can retrieve the file from quarantine. If the file is not quarantined, search for the file in Detection Configuration section and let it Allow.

 

Thanks & regards,

pegas

Well I don't mind waiting if it helps Webroot out.  I'll attach the files.

Hmmm ... strange as I can get there, anyway please go to http://www.webroot.com/En_US/support-wsa-products.html and on the right side there is a link called Open a Support Ticket, it should take you then to https://detail.webrootanywhere.com/servicewelcome.asp

Re: False Threat on networkminer.exe?

Pegas' advice is very accurate.  When you put in a support ticket and indicate "False Positive" as the reason, it gets expedited to the Threat Research team and usually handled within a few hours or less, even though we have to quote up to 72 business hours.

Re: False Threat on networkminer.exe?

Sorry apparently there is a seperate password for filing a ticket from this forum, and that threw me a bit.  Thanks for putting up with me. :smileyhappy:

Ahh, yes, there are three primary password systems, one for your actual account, one for the Community Forums here, and one for the support system.

Re: False Threat on networkminer.exe?

That would be an excellent idea for the Ideas Exchange.  It would be nice to keep track of how many other people would like to see such a feature implemented.  Would you mind posting the idea there?
