Virus Detection of Wallet (Download) from the official Website (19 out of 64)



  • Hey, I used to mine burst but couldnt find the time to manage the stuff so I stopped it. Recently I thought why not try it again but my wallet somehow wasn't working, so I deinstalled (deleted) it and wanted to redownload it. But in the middle of downloading the file my antivirus said there is a virus in the file (Im using avast). Well I thought that was a false positive because I trust the burst community and everything, but when I stopped my antivirus and downloaded it, I uploaded it to virustotal. Shockingly 19 out of 64 Engines Detected it as a virus. I dont really believe its a virus (most likely something that triggers it--> false positive) but Im generally very cautious when it comes to such stuff, so I wanted to ask here if anybody knows anything about that?

    Virus-Total: https://www.virustotal.com/#/file/600b0e4f40ffffcd8cc8b7ef6fab51380990d4ef547666710783d9b4ad49bb9b/detection

    The download link of the wallet: https://sourceforge.net/projects/burstwindowswallet/

    (The download link is from the official https://www.burst-team.us page, when you go to "Download Wallet)

    But I even tried downloading it from https://www.burst-coin.org/
    My AV still blocks the file.

    Any help?



  • files can be flagged as suspicious in voluntary by jerks. As for heuristically AV companies have to verify the unknown true nature of the files before removing the flag and usually it takes too long (new wallet versions happen sooner) Therefore your AV provider has most likely been abused. Another explanation is a middleman attack has occurred to you whilst the data is in transit downloading to your PC. (most unlikely) another explanation could be the repository has had its password compromised (almost impossible) My opinion is that it is a false positive I have downloaded it and ran it on Norton, and Avira also Microsoft. No infection. If possible, people could try to un flag it? BTW the wallet can cease to function normally when anti virus and malware software's start a sandbox protection mechanism to isolate a supposedly suspicious program usually to the point of stalling it.

    Ah okay thanks a lot. Another question, where should I download the wallet from? burst-team.us or burstcoin.org? I think when I left burstcoin.org was just in development and Im not really sure anymore, is burst-team.us still the official Page or is burstcoin.org now? Or both?

    And also, why isnt the software signatured? Shouldnt it be easy for developers to make a trusted signature on their software?



  • @theoneandonely www.burst-team.us has been replaced by www.burst-coin.org and is redirecting to it.



  • @Gadrah_
    Ahh alright thanks



  • Some antivirus softwares detect mining softwares as viruses. AIO wallet is one that can be flagged due to that.
