Google and Microsoft are teaming up on the “Trusted Source“ project to help address the huge problem of false positives in the antivirus industry.
Current False Positives on WinPrivacy:
- Chrome - They have a false positive on the WinPrivacy download and raise a big red scare screen for no reason. We’ve followed their instructions to have the FP investigated but have heard nothing in return. We have yet to find a phone number to speak with a person. We recommend you do not use Chrome until they fix this false positive. None of the anti-malware products on the site they own, VirusTotal reports our installer as malware, yet they still have this false positive in Chrome. So, I wonder how the Trusted Source initiative is coming along…
- ESET NOD32 – Has false positive on our 32 and 64 bit TDI and WFP drivers and supporting files. This renders WinPrivacy unusable.
- Baidu-International – FP on nfapi.dll, driver support file
