I've D-loaded Secunia PSI 2.0 and my ZoneAlarm Extreme Security (set to Super Scan with the latest virus Definitions) scan results shows that the software is "Zombie" and recommends deleting it. I've D-loaded it several times with the same scanning results. I'm currently using the 1.5.0.2 version of PSI.

Z/A Extreme Security ver. 9.3.037.000
TrueVector= same as above
Driver ver. 9.1.522.000
A/V & A-Spuware engine ver 8.0.2.48, DAT file ver. 1033258424
Anti-Spam ver. 6.0.0.2385
Z/A Browser Security 1.5.152.14

Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit
All current updates applied

Hi,

Please find the installer you used for the PSI, right-click, select properties, and go to the 'Digital Signature' tab.

If the installer you used is signed by Secunia, and counter-signed by VeriSign, you have the right installer. In that case, this is simply a false positive.

We will contact ZA support and notify them of this issue.

hope this helps.

Hi ,

I have PSI 2.0.0.1001 loaded and I have just run a "super" scan with the same ZAES and a very slightly later DAT file #1033269088 successfully and no "zombies" detected ; an individual folder check on the program files folder and the installer was also negative .

What I have observed is that with the " virtaulisation" enabled in the "Browser Security" settings then certain downloader(s)/installer(s) give/get a red refusal - especially on high intensity heuristics - to allow the download to disc . I have had this occur with other "certified" installers :eg: Auslogics Disc Defrag installer from FileHippo . I have not tested downloading the PSI installer this way in Firefox just yet , may get time later . This is a different process to the system "full" scan .

Hope this is useful .

Anthony
