Posted 24 Nov 2009To be clear, I think you are referencing SmitFraud. I have some experience with this, but not because of UBCD4WIN.
Mostly full details here: http://en.wikipedia.org/ wiki/SmitFraud
You are correct, either way it's gets picked up as a virus but I know some AV's pick it up as one which makes things harder to discern as far is if it is really a virus or not. About 12 out of the 41 scanners on virustotal flag it.
Posted 24 Nov 2009How come both the version history page and list of tools page do not list the Smithfraud tool as part of UBCD4Win?
How is this question related to what you quoted? There is not reason to quote someone if you are asking an off-topic question... in fact, you really should post an off-topic post in a thread, you should search for an existing thread about the same subject and if not found start a new one.
The reason, if there is one, the amount of the project's donations do not allow the developers to quit their real jobs... so we focus on updating the project first, posting help etc on the forum next and minor details such as the website info comes very last. It is, however, listed in the changes.txt file found in the build itself.
It's related because the thread topic is about the smitfraud removal tool in the UBCD4Win package. It's being picked up as a virus and I was wondering why it's not listed anywhere on your site as part of the package. I wanted to make sure it wasn't thrown in there or altered when it wasn't supposed to be since as I said MD5 hash's can be hacked. Since this package came out seven months ago I thought the page would have been up to date. I think it's a false positive either way. I think this is a great project and i'm not trying to annoy you i'm just careful about what I run on my computer.
Posted 23 Nov 2009Are you sure it was detected as a virus and not something else... it would be a good question for you to ask Eset about since we can't speak for them... I can tell you to read our FAQ about this type of situation though.

Posted 18 Nov 2009By the way I meant v3.50 not 3.55.
Posted 17 Nov 2009It's the ActiveX control for "Microsoft Common Controls" and is needed for some of the installation and configuration utilities to work properly.
Thanks for the answer. By the way when I built the project hashchecker ran and it could not download the hash file, I allowed it in my firewall. No big deal I manually checked the hash before I ran anything. Just wondering what was up with that.
