Knowledge Base support case for AllWebMenus, abstracted and stripped of all user’s private info.

Support Case Month: September 2012

I am trying to update my AllTheWebMenus 5 PRO, but for the first time ever Trend Micro is stopping and deleting the downloaded program before it can install. Is there anyway that the update could have been hacked and corrupted? Or is it a case of Trend being to cautious? Should I just close Trend until installed. This has never been a problem before.

Thanks, Stuart

Dear Stuart,

If you downloaded the update from our site, then this is definitely a false-positive.

We test our installers with several antivirus applications before uploading them to our servers and we even submit them to some antivirus companies (such as Symantec) for further validation.

Although this is pretty rare, we did have cases in the past were some antivirus products mistakenly produced an alert for our products, usually due to the anti-crack protection that we use and they confuse with malicious code.

You can also see the scan of our latest update with VirusTotal which scans with the most popular antivirus engines:

The solution for this is to add AllWebMenus to the white-list of Trend Micro, or temporarily disable it during the AllWebMenus installation.

I disabled Trend to install it.  I think it is something in the new Trend 2013 version.
Anyway, it is now installed.

Thanks

Dear Stuart,

Thank you for your feedback. We will contact “Trend Micro” to see if this can be corrected on their side by adding a rule in their database.

Let me know if you run into any more problems.

Dear John,

We always scan our installers with several antivirus products before uploading them, and I can assure you that the current version is also clean.

Here is a new scan I just did in “virustotal”:

Did you download this from our own download page, or from a different server/site?

Dear John,

We can now fully confirm (after contacting Symantec) that this was indeed a false-positive and will be corrected in the next definitions update of your antivirus.

For now, you can turn Sonar off while you install AllWebMenus.

Thank you for letting us know regarding this issue, so that we could contact Symantec in turn and fix the problem for all our users.
