Hi, We have discovered with one of the antivirus tool that there is a suspect of having a malware in Wireshark-win64-3.0.1 release. File "Wireshark-win64-3.0.1.exe" is scanned and antivirus detected Malware: W32/Trojan2.PZJB in it. The checksums are as: md5 - 8a06061bb19d8fae7a2536ee84796d7a sha1 - 2e51ae89f86d8b3dedde94564a2f0fcdc4298789 sha256 - 80e9bdfcb3bfb3800c202efcdfbb286a2b89d0bf2b8d94f2727d117b0013c821

Do you have any chance to dig this any deeper whether it is false positive or not?

A check on virustotal does not indicate any problems, which antivirus tool is reporting the malware?

You might want to report this to your antivirus vendor as a false positive.

F-Prot did that detection. We also checked virustotal and it doesn't indicate anything. Also some other AV's don't give the alarm.

As none of the other AV products seem to indicate the presence of malware, I would assume this is a false positive and contact F-prot about it.
