BugslayerUtil.dll as a trojan
« on: November 26, 2006, 11:54:13 AM »

I just recently upgraded my free version of avg from 7.1 to 7.5 and did a fullscan, appereantly BugslayerUtil.dll in my WME folder was reported as having a trojan and was thus deleted.  Someone needs to check into this, I don't think it's an actual virus or trojan or anything, but you never know.  Of course WME is new to (1.6) so anything new could potentially trigger that.

Let me know if anyone knows anything about this.

MMh,

no bells or whistles from my Kaspersky, so I'd guess, this was a misinterpretation of AVG.

Nice day

I'm aware of this issue. It's most likely false alarm (this DLL is 7 years old, originally published in Dr. Dobb's Journal and it's used by numerous programs for crash analysis). Nevertheless, I recompiled the DLL using a newer version of Visual C++ compiler and now it no longer triggers the AVG warning. I'll include the recompiled DLL with future WME releases.
Thanks for reporting.

Thanks for responding so quickly Mnem -- Of course I did not think WME had a virus, when I said that you never know, I meant you never know if a virus planted itself somewhere, which can happen as I am told sometimes.  In any case I can wait for a new version.
