MALWARE ALERT

Post by K3GWK » 16 May 2016, 18:23

Yesterday I installed the latest version of Log4OM, 1.25.0. The new version installed over the version I was using. Took a while but I finally got the Communicator software running, Omnirig working with my radio and tried entering a few contacts. I have not switched to Log4OM yet but I am considering it. I have a copy of my log loaded for experimentation. I really like what I see.

Today I received a MALWARE warning from Windows Defender. Windows Defender removed and quarantined the offending files. When I tried to start Log4OM there was a popup that said that the program file refereed to by the shortcut was missing. Worked fine yesterday! I checked the Log4OM directory and found that most of the "exe" programs were missing.

I tried re-loading and re-installing Log4OM and got several MALWARE alarms from Windows Defender. The MALWAR it is finding is Trojan: Win32/Fethar.B!cl

Is there an issue here? Is this an error that can be bypassed. I really like Log4OM and hope this is just a Windows Defender issue. I can't even install it now. HELP!

Your prompt replay is appreciated. Windows 10 (Version 1511 Build: 10586.318) on an HP Pavilion laptop.

hi...

looking around the web, it seems to be a false positive by Windows defender... but keep monitoring.

hope the development team can clear.

Could I download version 1.24 and use it until a fix is found for the new version of Log4OM? Short cuts won't work and no .exe files remain in the IW3HMH - Log4OM files.

I am toast here with TN and S. Orkney going QRV.

I use two monitors. My left monitor just rotated 90 degrees a moment ago. The left is normal. Could that also be part of the Trojan infection of Log4OM? This is bizarre. All other programs seem to be functioning normally.

I just flipped the monitor orientation in display settings from "flipped" to landscape. Now normal. Bob WU6C

I am in the same boat here, Windows Defender keeps removing the .exe

From Windows Defender:

Category: Trojan

Description: This program is dangerous and executes commands from an attacker.

Recommended action: Remove this software immediately.

Items:
file:C:\Program Files (x86)\IW3HMH\Log4OM\LogOMUI.exe
