CA mistakes Windows system file for malware


Computer Associates' eTrust antivirus application flagged a Windows system file as malware for several hours last Friday.

A spokesman for the security vendor told vnunet.com that the error followed an incorrect update of the application's antivirus signature file, causing it to remove or isolate a file named 'isass.exe'.

The company released an update for its antivirus signature file within seven hours. CA mistakes Windows system file for malware - Security - www.itnews.com.au
