FYI,

Kaspersky Internet Security quarantined and then deleted WOFFToolbox.exe, indicating that it contained
the following virus: Trojan-Ransom.Win32.Gen.lc

This occurred the day after installing UE Patch 4.05. I was unable to restore it from quarantine, Kaspersky won't allow it. Not having any luck flagging this as a trusted application in Kaspersky, either.

Thought you'd like to know.

False warning - check this thread:
Link
Pol have already sent info to Kaspersky.
You can freely install it without worrying. Try disable AV first and then create exception for OBD Software folder in AV.

Thanks JJJ65, I knew it was a false positive...just couldn't find a thread about it late at night after working a 12-hour shift.

I manually made OBD Software a trusted application in Kaspersky, but still had to turn Kaspersky off to reinstall UE Patch 4.05. Not a big problem, just annoying late at night after a long day at work when all I want to do is enjoy a beer or two and fly.

I remember when PCs were fun. Like when we had to add a Voodoo card to our 2D cards to fly. And create custom Expanded Memory and High Memory profiles for every flight sim. And use Thrustmaster programming software. Not to mention every buggy windows upgrade. Now that I think about it, never mind.

52 Virus Scanners found it all clear including Eset NOD32, Ad-Aware AVG, Avast, Avira, Komodo, McAfee, Panda, Sofos, Symantec, Trend Micro, BitDefender, MalwareBytes, F-Prot, F-Secure, and a load more on virustotal.com

Only 4 didn't like the file (including Kaspersky and 3 obscure ones). They each found a different virus biggrin so we are fine.

Yeah Birddog I rem that too, fiddling with high memory to get something like 614k free to fly Falcon 3 or whatever it was. Almost impossible smile

Anyone still having issues with false detections from any AV, install 4.06 or higher - this is recompiled and has a different signature which seems to have helped in this regard.

Yeah, no problems with 4.06.

Yep, ESET NOD32 deleted Toolbox.exe after AV database update on last Wednesday. It was OK before (until Wednesday).
Since I know it is false warning I removed the file from AV vault, placed it back and set exception to xx:/OBD Software/ path.

So that's where my toolbox.exe went. I've been looking for it all day yesterday.

The Toolbox.exe problem seems to have returned with patch 4.07.

Hmm nuts, Toolbox was updated a few versions back just for better UE compatibilty.

We did send that exact exe to Kaspersky, not heard back from them. Maybe someone else can report it as a false positive too?

I've already done it. Hopefully they'll fix it.

Just heard from them (had to contact them again)

Thank you for your help.

I think that all good antiviruses must detect a Toolbox.exe as malicious application, because it accesses and delete some (although OBD Software) windows registry keys and such activity can not be left unnoticed.

You are right. Maybe some new virus has similar signature to your Toolbox.exe?

So far no problems with Kaspersky and the latest patch. They must have fixed the problem.
