Possible virus

  • When clicking on the download button I get this message "Gateway Anti-Virus Alert
    This request is blocked by the Firewall Gateway Anti-Virus Service. Name: VB.A_119 (Trojan)" However, if I click download for later use I get no message from the firewall, or Mcafee and Malwarebytes.

    Sincerely
    Tim

  • Which download button is that?

  • There are several possible factors at work. First, the nature of the program itself that you are attempting to download, both in terms of its name and what its code actually contains: might it perhaps indeed be infected? Second, the nature of the Gateway protection service and its analysis mechanisms: this could be a false positive against a legitimate program (in which case, the Gateway maker should be notified to correct the false ID). Third, the way that the Gateway is hooked into the brower(s) may affect when and how the AV analyzes an incoming file, particularly if RAM is used in the downloading process at hand, since AVs typically immediately analyze files as they are opened (placed into memory) as opposed to simply being written to disk.

  • Sfunhouse the button is the first download button on the opera.com page. Blackbird, thanks for the thought on what it could be. Yes, it was downloading directly to memory. However, if it is not happening to anyone else then it must be a false positive. Thanks for responding.
