Hallo,

my Avira-Scanner says that

on (eclipse.mirror.kangaroot.net/) the recommenders/models/luna/jre/jre/1.0.0-SNAPSHOT/jre-1.0.0-20140604.182326-1-call.zip

may have a malware named "EXP/11-3544.DZ.1"

Could someone confirm/disconfirm if it is actually false positive?

Thanks
Alex.

Yes, this is a false positive.

I just downloaded the ZIP in question and personally verified its contents. It only contains (meta-)data (serialized Bayesian Networks that drive our intelligent call completion); there is no executable code contained in the ZIP.

FWIW, here are the results of a Virus Total scan using 53 virus scanners: Avira is the only scanner flagging this file.

This is nevertheless really unfortunate, as Avira (being free) is presumably one of the more common virus scanners out there. I've thus reported this issue to them as a false positive.

Hope this helps.

Thank you for the fast reaction, Andreas! This helps me not to perform some extreme actions on my installation...

You're welcome, Alexander.

FYI: The Avira team has updated there signatures.
