Hey guys,

Just looking at moving theSkyNet POGS onto the newer precompiled wrappers, from http://boinc.berkeley.edu/trac/wiki/WrapperApp and ran a quick virus scan using virustotal.com. Where it found that 4 of the scanners are detecting a trojan in the wrapper_26011_windows_intelx86.exe file.
see https://www.virustotal.com/en/file/b303fd5cf67c2132f3c188888777f05dd05cdf91c09f97cb0c3dab76fdbf6d68/analysis/ for more details.

I imagine it would just be a false positive but as we'll be pushing this out to clients we wanted to be doubly sure. Does anyone know one which machine the wrapper was compiled on and can verify that the machine is clean?

Cheers

As far as I know my machines remain clean.

I did notice that the binary was not code-signed. I'll create a new wrapper and code-sign it.

I've posted 26013 which has been code-signed.
