[jitsi-users] Jitsi update trojan virus found, download from homepage clean


#1

Today my jitsi installation offered my an automatic update, after the
download was complete, my virus scanner popped up and said the download
contains a trojan horse named "Dropper.Gen". The download address looked OK,
but I canceled the update. Then I downloaded the latest x86 version directly
from the jitsi homepage (
http://download.jitsi.org/jitsi/windows/jitsi-1.0-beta1-nightly.build.3689-x86.exe).
This time the virus scanner found nothing.
I use Win7 and Free AntiVir. Did anybody observe similar things? Why does
antivir finds a trojan in the update?

Microsoft Security Essentials does not warn me against the x64 flavor
of build 3689 on Windows 7.

We had false positives before when various anti-virus software
programs wrongly labeled jmsoutlookaddrbook.dll viral. We contacted
the respective anti-virus software developers and most of them cleared
the .dll in question. I don't explicitly remember whether Avira
answered our feedback.
