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

I think it is a false positive, 3/43 or 7%

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.
