Symantec Antivirus False Positive
July 4, 2006
Several users have reported that Symantec AntiVirus products have detected a trojan in the Wireshark 0.99.1pre1 Windows installer.
We haven't found any trace of the trojan (Trojan.Zlob) on our build system, and Symantec Security Response has been unable to duplicate the issue. They recommend that everyone updates their virus definitions. Symantec's response is included below:
