The .exe file created by the Enigma Virtual Box is blocked by antivirus

Post by Philipp » Mon May 11, 2020 8:00 pm

Hi,
The .exe file created by the Enigma Virtual Box from the WinForm project is blocked by Avast antivirus and is automatically quarantined. On VirusTotal, the same file is marked as malicious by thirteen antiviruses.

Enigma Virtual Box downloaded from the official site. In the Enigma Virtual Box program and in the WinForm project, antiviruses do not detect malicious elements, but only, I repeat, detect them in the .exe file created by the Enigma Virtual Box program.

I also add that the antivirus Avast blocks the .exe file only if the Allow running of virtual executable files check box is selected in its Enigma Virtual Box. If this check box is unchecked, then the antivirus does not respond, but the program in the .exe file does not work correctly.

Is there any way to fix this problem?

Hi, this wrong detection names false positive detection and happens due to mistake of antivirus.

What you should do to fix it - submit protected file to antivirus and ask to fix it.
For Avast this form is there: https://www.avast.com/false-positive-file-form.php

Also, to avoid false detection we recommend digitally sign packed file with code signing certificate.
