Koofr desktop - false positive virus warning


Service status


As some Windows users may have noticed some of the anti-virus applications were giving false alarm warning messages. The application files version update that is performed by the process dropper.exe became an issue for the anti-virus software.


Dropper is a small program that replaces our existing version with the new one – some of the anti-virus software applications recognized the version as malicious. We believe that the problem is that it does something similar to what a trojan could do – i.e. replace one koofr .exe with a new one. If you already deleted dropper .exe, please note that a manual download will be required for the next update.

We have already got feedback from most antivirus vendors who confirmed false positive and have processed removal of false positive from their antivirus. If the problem still occurs, please do not hesitate to contact our support (support@koofr.net). In the meantime, we are working on a new version to hopefully prevent this issue for future updates.
