"Perhaps you'll tell me why you say that the Exploit Agent is a temporary file--it's not in a tmp or temp directory. What part of the path is the clue?"
sorry, when i read the path you posted, it seems that i read the last part of the address as tmp but it says lib, i was wrong, i really need to use my glasses
then, the file was placed there by the install, that /opt folder is not accessible for normal user afik
"If T6 had of been using AVG "for years" he would have said it found False Positives too." and "No need to be putting down Avast!, all AV's have their traits, well off the Topic at hand."
why you say this? i mentioned avast because is what i used until 2011, before that, i used avg only
right now i use avira in my house and avast for some clients i have, avast gives me lots of false positive but also works well so one thing mitigates the other
i never said avg didn't gave me false positive in the past, it did, it also just deleted the file when i knew it wasn't a virus so i had to disable the antivirus to handle the file, avira at least complaints first and i can tell it to not delete the file
since i haven't used avg in last 3 or 4 years, i can't mention if currently it gives that or not and if false positives is common on it now
remember that i fix windows pcs, it has been my job and my hobby for the last 13 years, if you try to find holes or weaknesses in my statements you will find many because in the first place, i don't speak english so i have to translate first what i write to english, my english knowledge is limited so then i try to find logic to what i just wrote and make corrections, also i can't talk about every single product and his current state because i can't use every single product existing just to know it exist
from your reply it seems that my posts are not welcome or you think i'm telling lies, or perhaps you expect me to know everything from every single product created for windows
if that is the case, i ask you, are you crazy?
