Hi,

On Feb. 17th 2011, Microsoft Security Essentials (MSE) reported that the file:C:\Program Files (x86)\Secunia\PSI\psialog.txt contained the virus VBS/Cari, with an alert level of Severe.

I searched the forum for "VBS/Cari", but did not find any matches.

I am hoping this is just a false positive, and I was wondering if anyone else had the same "Virus" found by MSE. To check just look under the history tab in MSE and it should be displayed there.

Also if there is anywhere I can send the file to be checked, I would be happy to do so. Right now it has been quarantined by MSE.

Thanks for any suggestions,

TJ.

My Avira Premium Security Suite detected nothing. Suggest you contact Customer Services for Microsoft Security Essentials and let them decide if it's
a false positive. Avira customers can always sent their suspicous files to their
Virus Lab for investigation.

Thanks for your reply. I will look into finding the right department at MS to send it to.

@ tj7777

Beside the advice from Leendert kip, In your platform of MSSE go to settings and then choose ADVANCED. Please read carefully what's writen in cause the progam sends informations to MS automatically.

Hope that help.

Hello TJ ,

Both Jotti :-

http://virusscan.jotti.org/en-gb

and Virustotal :-

http://www.virustotal.com/

allow you to load files for a free on-line scan .

I can confirm Lk's statement that Avira's follow up analysis is good , but I doubt they will test other AV products' findings .

Take care

Anthony

I can't reproduce this. It looks like you hit it when the file signature happened to match the virus.
