Hi all. After a disk scan for viruses, I was very surprised to find the main FBA DLLs infected by a virus. My Avira Antivir scanner found the trojan TR/DROPPER.GEN in FBIde.dll and in the "registered" version FBIdeR.dll . I hope it would be a false positive; please, give me an answer about this critical question: may my own FBA applications, freely distributed on my internet site, be infected by the same virus ?
:( ... bye

It could be a false positive, surely original DLL are not infected in any way :)
Btw, they hold the pocketpc and windows runtime executables (there are IDE sources linked somewhere on this forum, you can watch them in order to know how FBIDE.DLL and FBIDER.DLL are used).
Obviously I can't tell you if you're infected in some other way (provided it isn't a false positive which infects system DLLs); you could try a full system scan with other AV packages.

Thank you for prompt answer, evilmaio. I don't have any other (visible :-) ) virus on my system, so the alert for FDIde.dll it's probably a false positive. It will be interesting if some other forum's friend can check the dll with the same antivirus (last version of Avira free) and post here if the alert appears. I will appreciate this sort of crossed test; thanks in advance to friends that can help me. Bye...

I don't know what kind of heuristic scan Avira uses, maybe it doesn't like a dll with more executables resources inside ;)
(although I think it isn't an uncommon approach!)

Thank you, SergeyK. I haven't understand any word from the Russian site you proposed, but seems evident, even for a latin reader, that the FBIde.dll has no infections. That's good. Bye...

That site has several different languages. I found the English button right away. ;)

Thanks, Sergey!

Many thanks, SergeyK. The link for italian language worked fine and I've seen the complete report about the FBIde tested under various antivirus programs. It's a good and useful service. I don't understand why some antivirus (3 in all) shown the FBIse containing a virus and others don't. I have the heuristic option disabled on my AVira free antivirus, but it everytime sounds for alarm when scanning such file. Well, I decided to don't care anymore for the virus alert and inserted FBide.dll in the list of trusted applications (hoping to not became the most infected man in the universe !!!).
Thank you, again. Bye
