Question  XBMC 11.0 Eden TROJAN!?
Post: #1
Hi guys,

I'm new here so sorry if I made thread in the wrong section.
Admins, you can move it if you like.

I've been using XBMC for more than 1 year now, and everything was OK.
Today I've downloaded Eden 11.0 (beta 1) and when I installed it it freezed for a bit.
To cut the long story short,

- BitDefender Internet Security 2012 found something inside XBMC, that looks like a TROJAN? Confused

-Here is a snapshot of BitDefender with the result of scan:

Could someone please explain what this is about and help me?

Any help is very welcome.
I wish everyone Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Big Grin

That would be BitDefenders job if its a false positive which it obviously is or just add it to be ignored

I've done a full system scan and it's 100% clear.

Guys, thx for the quick response... Big Grin

I will make a rule in bitdefender for this .dll
let's hope that nothing will happen to my collection, it took me quite a while to put it together.

Cheers mates...

timidity is just for playing midis so removing it may not harm. However nothing changed to the source so I guess the mingw compilation shares a string with a trojan. If anyone wants to check: Here is the source which we use for timidity.dll

Always read the XBMC online-manual, FAQ and search the forum before posting.

Avira AntiVirus also detected a trojan. I sent them the timidity.dll for review and they naturally confirmed it's a false positive. Updated signatures are available in VDF

If your AV is reporting it as a virus/trojan let your AV provider know. Otherwise if they don't know, they won't fix it.

Funnily enough, Comodo raised it as HIGH for me Laugh I've raised it with Comodo as a false alert....
