Sophos Antivirus Detects Itself as Malware

October 03, 2012  Security Suite

The software company Sophos leaked a false malware detection, one which recognizes all new updates as malware with Shh / Updater-B markings. This included Sophos, and affected the security software during a routine update. Acrobat Reader and Java were just some of the other updates falsely detected. False detections are not uncommon and occur with all security applications. Perhaps the most memorable was Norton Symantec’s false detection of two system files of a Chinese version of Windows XP, which when removed or quarantined would cause Windows to boot up in safe mode. Another example occurred last year when Microsoft Security Essentials marked the installation of Google Chrome as a virus. For prevention and protection, users should use an application such as System Protect.
