New False Positive from Spyware Doctor (Update)

malware_warningWhile fixing the false positive detection from a few days ago, PCTools managed to add a new false alarm in their Google Pack version of Spyware Doctor: Today, the program alerts the user that Avira’s ccev.dll contains the Backdoor.Bandok. Of course this is a false alert, the Avira software is clean.

We contacted PCTools again and hope that they remove the faulty signature as soon as possible. Until an update is available please deactivate Spyware Doctor from Google Pack.


PCTools published an update that remidies the issue. You can update Spyware Doctor and reactivate it again.
