This is the official response that I have received from Sophos. I'm posting it here just so that there is a record of it. /* Start of email */ thank you for your email. The file ccsetup134.exe that you sent to us for analysis was indeed producing a false-positive report and an updated IDE file has been released to correct this. Please do not hesitate to contact me if I can be of any further assistance. /* End of email */
Yes, I think so too. Sophos reported the same trojan in the Winamp and Inkscape install files. I assume that they're all using the same installer and something in the installer is setting off the anti-virus. I've submitted the CCleaner setup file to Sophos and noted with them that I think it's reporting a false positive. Hopefully they'll sort it out quickly.
I've just updated my anti-virus and Sophos has detected that CCleaner contains the trojan Zlob-VU Sophos details I initially thought it was because my system had been compromised so I downloaded the file again and it was again detected as the same trojan. I've also downloaded another '.exe' from another website (Mcafee Stinger) to make sure that the file wasn't being infected after being downloaded. I was able to download that file and it did not contain the trojan. Can anyone else verify what I've found or is Sophos wrong?
