• Trojan:Win32/Wacatac.C!ml malware detected in synchronet windowsbuild

    From Tracker1@VERT/TRN to DOVE-Net.Synchronet_Discussion on Wednesday, April 01, 2020 12:08:40
    BTW, several executables from a nightly windows download from vert a few
    days ago were flagged with Wacatac.

    I don't think I've used any of those executables, unless they're used in
    the default setup.

    Pretty sure that's a false positive.

    Certainly the last 3 are.

    Possible false positives. What Security software are you using?

    I used asc2ans and it worked like a charm, I'm still smiling on how well
    it worked!

    Probably... Just windows defender (default for win10).
