How comes places such as Bleeping computer, castlecops etc class Sigx as bad? I scanned at virus total and Norman and F-secure said itwas W32/Stration.AOY which when I researched W32/Stration I was told it was a mass mailing worm. Wtf?

sigx is not a virus.

Excuse me?


I'm not sure I can make web pages up ;)

Which sites have you never heard of before? I'm not saying it is a worm/virus/malware of any kind I'm just asking why they catagorize it as so.

Virustotal results:

File "SigX.exe" received on 02.25.2007 at 14:50:05 (CET) is being scanned by VirusTotal in this moment. Results will be shown as they're generated.

Nither of the sites said SigX was a bad program. One of them said its undesired. They usually categorize that for most programs that they have no idea about. As long as you know what the program is, its up to you to decide if its desired or not.

While I dont know about virus categories, it seems to me that W32/Stration is a wide category, and there are false positives and im not sure what it means. sigx might share a function call like reading your registry which is triggering the antivirus.
