    Fusion 2.5 developer is generating virus checker false positives

    I tried to send my friend an .exe that I build with Fusion 2.5 develeoper, but his antivirus (BUllguard) stoped the transfer and said it was unsafe.

    So I ran a scan on the .exe through virustotal and found:


    PE:Malware.Obscure/Heur!1.9E03

    This malware was also found on older .exes that was made with standard version of fusion 2.5. I scanned the Fusion2.5.exe and the .mfa and they were clean. Which leads me to the conclusion that the software generates it.


    How can I fix this? It's quite problematic for a dev/designer to have this on their products.

    It is just a false positive. It is very common with heuristic scanners

    Once you have made a final build, you could contact the antivirus companies that flags it and let them know their mistake

    If you have the "Compress the runtime" option checked (found under the Application's Properties → Windows tab), uncheck that. The self-decompression techniques would also cause some antiviruses to go crazy.

    Yes, definitely make sure the runtime is not compressed - and see if you can send the EXE to Bullguard with a report of a false positive - they should have a link along those lines on their site somewhere.

    compress the runtime is not checked. antivirus Rising detects same "malware". I will try to report this as a false positive. However I have no deep understanding of malwares

    Are there any objects you're using that might be causing it? I think there was some mouse-related object that virus scanners don't like...

    Yes, things that have the potential to move the mouse automatically or grab the cursor in some way are often detected as potentially malicious.
