Starting today, AVG anti-virus scanner reports a couple of SmartSVN’s files on Windows as trojan (more details here).
We have just received following email from the AVG Customer Services which confirms the false positives and gives instructions on how to deal with them:
Unfortunately, the current virus database version may detect the mentioned virus on some legitimate applications. We can confirm that it is a false alarm. We would like to inform you that the false positive will be removed in the next Definitions update. Please update your AVG and if a new Definitions update was downloaded, check whether the file is still detected.
If you need to restore deleted files from AVG Virus Vault you can do it this way:
- Open AVG user interface.
- Choose “Virus Vault” option from the “History” menu.
- Locate the file that was incorrectly removed and select it (one click).
- Click on the “Restore” button.
