    Hello Asco,

     

    Thank you for reporting that.
    This is most likely a false positive and should be now fixed with the latest Hydra update (F-Secure Hydra Update 2015-02-20_01).
     
    Could you try to update your network and confirm is the detection is still present?

    Hello,

     

    > should be now fixed with the latest Hydra update

     

    Sounds strange? FSC viruslab told me this alert was an Aquarius DB false detection, so how is this remedied by a Hydra update, which belongs to a different scanner engine?

     

    Thanks in advance, Yours Sincerely: Tamas Feher, 2F 2000 Kft., Hungary.

    Hi,

     

    The above mentioned hydra update included an exclusion to avoid the detection.

    The white-list in this case should have effect on all engines.
