    My latest AVG scan (virus db 271.1.1/2850) showed a 'Trojan horse Cyptic.JV' in JustCode\Libraries\Telerik.JustCodeNavigation.SearchFiles.dll.  Have you seen this before?  Is it a false positive?  If so, have you told AVG?

    By the way, a fresh download of JustCode_2010.1.415_Dev.msi gives an immediate warning of this trojan upon download as well.

    Thanks!

    Hello,

    Thanks all for reporting this problem. The problem seems like a false positive with the latest AVG virus definitions.
    What we did:

    - We checked the procedure for submitting a false positive to AVG:
    http://forums.avg.com/us-en/avg-free-forum?sec=thread&act=show&id=395
    - We tested the file with jotti:
    http://virusscan.jotti.org/en/scanresult/281006b1d404faa713f418962d830add8295d445
    - Only AVG reported this issue and the other scanners didn't find anything suspicious in that file and this confirms it's a false positive.
    - We submitted the issue to AVG and we hope they'll update they definitions in a timely manner.

    We're terribly sorry for the inconvenience.

    Regards,
    Chris

    Thanks for the quick response, I figured as much...  Just wanted to make sure you guys did not get infected when you did not realize it.

    Hello,
    We received the following reply from the AVG team:

    Dear Sir/Madam,

    thank you for your e-mail.

    Unfortunately, the current virus database version may detect the mentioned virus on some legitimate applications. We can confirm that it is a false alarm. We would like to inform you that the false positive will be removed in the next Definitions update. Please update your AVG and if a new Definitions update was downloaded, check whether the file is still detected.

    If you need to restore deleted files from AVG Virus Vault you can do
    it this way:
    - Open AVG user interface.
    - Choose "Virus Vault" option from the "History" menu.
    - Locate the file that was incorrectly removed and select it (one
    click).
    - Click on the "Restore" button.

    We are sorry for the inconvenience.

         Best regards,

    Hope it helps and once again, we're sorry for the inconvenience.
