    I am trying to install the Telerik Control Panel in a "regulated" corporate environment on a new laptop. Our sec admin is saying that the TelerikControlPanelSetup_2015_2_0401_2 executable is showing up as potential malicious on his report.  A quick google search for that executable name and "malicious" returned this link.


    This was the only google hit on this, but some of the contents of the page was a bit disconcerting. Has anyone else ever ran into the Telerik Control Panel hitting on a sec report?

    Hi Johnny,

    Sometimes some antivirus engines' advanced heuristic analysis detect the Control Panel Setup file as "malicious". Actually in this cases the analysis has problems with the 7zS.sfx.exe which is the 7z self extracting executable which is used by the Telerik Control Panel. And if you take a look at the "Original name" row in the "File details" section of the report at your link, you'll notice that these results actual source is 7zS.sfx.exe.
    We guarantee that the Control Panel Setup, which we provide is not infected with any viruses. You can verify that the file you've downloaded is not modified before reaching you by checking its digital signature as shown in the attached picture. If the digital signature is OK then your file is not infected.
