    S60 3rd MR SDK has a virus included

    According to eTrust Antivirus.

    Eventhough occationally it feels like Symbian itself is a malicious software I belive this is a false positive. =)

    Antivirus Engine Version: 31.6.0.0
    Signature Version: 31.6.6266.0
    Last Signature Update: 18.12.2008

    File: 9.1\S60_3RD_MR\EPOC32\TOOLS\DISTRIB\ARM-NONE-SYMBIANELF-2005-Q1C.EXE
    Infection Name: Win32/Golid.Q

    I don't think scanning has reacted with eTrust eighter. But when I opened the folder some kind of real time check made the identification and removed the file.

    Re: S60 3rd MR SDK has a virus included

    there are 2 scenarios possible then:

    1. This file has been affected by a virus after installation and is itself not a virus.
    2. It is a FLASE positive...

    anyways, are you facing any problem, as this tool will mostly not be used, so you can carry on with work... good to notify it here :)

    Also can you uninstall and reinstall MR and before doing anything, scan that folder and see if it is reported again?

    So far I have had no problems because of this. Building seems to work ok.

    The file will be 'cured' (removed) after installation of sdk also.

    Re: S60 3rd MR SDK has a virus included

    do you actually need that file i mean - Arm Toolchain 2005-1qc.exe - its needed for build for AMR... which we rarely do... i guess most of the developers use gcce...

    so if you dont use the file, dont worry, just let the antivirus take care of it... or delete it...

    Re: S60 3rd MR SDK has a virus included

    oh ok... well then what should "phantP" do.... i guess he will need to disable the antivirus, install the tool chain and enable the antivirus.
    Also after install, perform a full system scan....

    any forum expert can confirm this to be the right way, or do any of the experts have better solutions

    Does look like the Machine already have a virus that is infecting the zipfile as soon as it is downloaded. i suggest using a cleaner machine.
