AVG sees testdisk_static as Linux/MrBlack virus

#1 Post by ieuan65 » 31 Jan 2016, 21:21

I'm mounting a shared folder from my windows host machine to a virtual ubuntu desktop running on VirtualBox.

I'm unecrypting the linux version of testdisk with 7-zip into the shared folder. I've got AVG Free on the PC and the minute the testdisk_static and photorec_static files are unecrypted AVG get rid of them and reports them as a Linux/MrBlack virus.

Does anybody know why this is happening?

Thanks in advance

Ieuan

Try to update your antivirus, its signature database...
Get the archive from https://www.cgsecurity.org/ not from somewhere else.
