Email from Ebay seen like virus by Avira Antivir

Postby logpc » 07 Dec 2008 10:30

Hi Miha

i have recentlty registered on eBay, and when i received a valid message from Ebay (not phishing or spoofing), Avira antivir says he founds a HTML/spoofing.Gen HTML Script virus. I think it's false positive (because the differents links in the email). I tried with Thunderbird and Antivir didn't react.

Regards
Chris

Hi Chris,

It might be a false positive. Could you tell me if the message has any remote images? Also I assume you are running with remote images loading disabled.

Miha

Hi Chris,

Sorry for late reply.
As precaution for bugs in html rendering engine I'm modifying message and this results in false positive your anti virus is reporting.

Regards,
Miha
