[SOLVED] Sim Acars and Avira AV
« on: May 25, 2015, 10:11:26 PM »
I've invited my staff to test out our new system. One of these uses Avira AV. When he tried to run the executable sim acars.exe he got the following error:

a virus or unwanted program 'TR/Confuser.403968' [trojan] was found.
Action taken: Blocked file

Now it has completely blocked him running the client. Any ideas on what to do here. Avira is a popular AV software package.

thanks

Solved thanks. It is a false positive so our pilot just added it to his Excluded files. Working fine now.

Thanks for the feedback. Some antivirus detect SIM acars as a virus but the root of the false positive is that I use a confuser tool to avoind that someone open de source code and sell the acars.
In the next version I will relax the level con ofuscating the source code to prevent the false positive.
