Defraggler detected as CBBS/Virus by Fortinet


Recommended Posts

dfsetup221.exe is being detected by FortiClient/Fortinet as a virus. I believe this may be a false positive.

Interestingly when uploaded to VirusTotal for inspection, it says that Fortinet does NOT detect it as a virus and ESET does. However, I have ESET on this PC and was able to download it just fine (have all the latest AV updates). On another PC, I have FortiClient installed and it gives me a CBBS/Virus detection when running the exe (and FortiClient AV is up to date as of 5/10/2017).

The same issue happens with the latest download of CCleaner.

as long as you get the downloads from the Piriform site, then yes, you can regard those warning as false positives.


ESET is a long time flagger of CCleaner as a false positive due to the bundled Google offerings.
