Hello,
AntiVir 10 show a trojan horse in the file track-time 6.5.exe (Spec 4.2.1) with the name "TR/Drop.PerlBot.A".
Haven´t found anything about this. Therefor I didn´t start the program. Please check and correct.
Thanks for your great work. Greetings Mike

Unfortunately, I'm at my day job right now and can't immediately look into this. I've asked Z and Fan51 to look into it as well, and they will provide an answer soon.

TT6.5 has never presented an issue for me, however, and I did install this particular package, without issue, prior to uploading it here.

I have tested with malware bytes and Symantec and it's clean.

Sounds like a false positive. Tracktime is perl script compiled with Indigo's Perl2exe:

http://www.indigostar.com/perl2exe.php

The whole purpose of which is to let you drop files on it to use them as an input.

I'll google on this later this morning.

I don't see anything via google but I'll tell you what you can do if you're still concerned.

Download and install Active state perl

Then I'll send you the source code for tracktime so you can see what is in there

Download the tial version of perl2eve so you can compile it yourself

Thanks for your answers,
I scanned also with avg and it is ok. I installed the program and there seems to be no problem til now.
It seems to be a false positiv reaction of anti vir.

This is what support@indigostar.com said:

Hello,

I assume that this is an isolated incidence. We use AVG and do not get a false positive. Antivir appears to be a free product with no support.
Can you please send an email to the Antivir people and see what they say? Their address is info@avira.com

We changed the subject header of this post as to not be alarmist to those who may encounter this thread, but also maintain the information to help them work through any false positives that may occur.

Hello again,
I sent an email to Avira, but they answered, that they have too much to do with their new release. I should look at their forum or the faq, but I haven´t found anything there.
Bye Mike

ok, they have too much to do and maybe 'they' can do something to let Avira/AntiVir working right without send wrongs advertences. :P

( :roll: this is why i never use any anti-virus! better stay with my ghost images from clean install with all programs working or...i reinstall 'everything' if needed. is better than have 'something' working in the background sending falses messages...just MHO)

cheers. ;)
