Trojan found in WhatPulse.exe
Hello

My Antivirus (Norton from Symantec) reports an Trojan in the new WhatPulse Update. Whats wrong, am I the only one with this problem?

RE: Trojan found in WhatPulse.exe
Scanned with 54 different virus scanners (VirusTotal) and got nothing. This is surely a false positive that should be reported to Symantec/Norton.

Nothing to worry about.

MD5 of installer should be: 555baafdb952586a9daf70ad436bf38f

Sadly confirmed :/. i got the same problem. I hope Symantec gets this rechecked and stuff.

So who will be the first to report it to Symantec?

(Scanned with Norton 360)

RE: Trojan found in WhatPulse.exe
I can't even install it on my Server-Systems. It gets blocked as Trojan :/ I can't do the Update at Work, because the Systemadministrator of the Company will get Crazy if he gets an Virus-Report of my Computer. The whole Company uses Symantec.

RE: Trojan found in WhatPulse.exe
Symantec and F-Secure should not alert to the client, as I use this to analyse, which includes both Symantec and F-Secure: https://www.virustotal.com/en/file/49987.../analysis/

Only one that's missing in that list is Norton, which I recall had false positives with 2.3 or 2.2 as well or something..Reporting another false positive.

Need to see if I can automatically submit false positives to everyone or something, this is crazy.

RE: Trojan found in WhatPulse.exe
Symantec here at work just popped up a warning that the installer exe was unfamiliar to it, but I was able to dismiss it, so no problems here.

Based on my last experience, Norton is shockingly overprotective these days.

RE: Trojan found in WhatPulse.exe
The alert I got was from whatpulse-after-update.exe file, which I can't even see in the whatpulse directory after update on my personal laptop.

RE: Trojan found in WhatPulse.exe
I also used virustotal just now. Nothing detected. My own personal computers also don't detect any file associated with whatpulse to be dangerous.
