TOPIC: Virus downloaded when I downloaded TMG vs8.08

Virus downloaded when I downloaded TMG vs8.08 13 Aug 2013 07:00 #785

I downloaded TMG vs 8.08 on my laptop, then today (2 days later) onto a desktop computer. On both occasions, AVG reported finding "Luha.Fiha.A virus" in the file C:\Program Files\Ther Master Genealogist v8\viewer\tmgss immediately after I finished the download. I had done a virus scan immediately before starting on the last occasion.

Is this a concern which needs reporting? I have done other downloads the same day as the last without any problems.

Thanks
Eva

Hi Eva,

There has been a bit of chatter about this virus and TMG on some of the chat sites, and Rootsweb has some info on it which suggests that AVG is showing the virus up, but it is false positive. Do a Google search for the virus name in inverted commas & add TMG to the end of the search query the look at the Rootsweb results..
Cheers

Thanks Chris. Had already removed the infected file but I was more concerned to warn others. TMG is running fine but I will need to replace the file I have removed.

TMG themselves seem to be saying to uninstal on the Wholly Genes forum.

Cheers
Eva
