New KPA1500 Remote Program

Ed G

Hello,
     Anyone else getting a virus hit when trying to install the KPA1500 Remote program (ver 1.14)? I get a “filerepmalware” indication, and Avast moves the exe file into the Avast file locker. I am running Win 10.

Anytime you suspect a file or url to be malicious you can submit it on
virustotal.com for analysis.

We do not see any virus violations here when installing the latest version of
KPA1500 Remote on our W10 or Windows 8 machines. I'm using it to control the
KPA1500 amp at my home station from work.

Of course it always asks you to confirm first before allowing installation.

Re: New KPA1500 Remote Program

6 out of 66 on virustotal would indicate a false positive. The well known
scanners didn't show anything. I would just disable avast while installing
or tell avast to whitelist the file.

Re: New KPA1500 Remote Program

I have the same issue with most Elecraft and other ham-related programs when
using Norton. The files get quarantined after downloading because they're
'suspect", typically due to "few users". There should be a setting in your
anti-virus program to get the file restored and "ignored" or "allowed".

Most *.exe programs are blocked by many antivirus programs.  Download first, then go to download folder note the file name and then add to the allowed programs in your anti virus program or firewall settings. You can always back down the user settings to not block everything suspicious but have the firewall prompt you as to whether or not you think it is safe. I am generic in my description as to how to do this as there are so many OS's and so little time... for me.

Have no fear, it’s a “false positive”.  Two of the hits are defined as
“FileRepMalware” which after some research basically means the KPA1500 Utility
has not been seen widely by the virus detection engine., which is not
unsurprising as 1.14 was brand new, and isn’t widely distributed.

Its likely to happen on many of our utilities, since the wider non-ham public is
not using them.

Hi,
By default, Avast will move any unknown file to the locker.  This includes
new software like the utility.  In the Avast settings, one of the first
entries is Enable CyberCapture.  Set this to "allow me to decide".
Once you have done this, it will not automatically be sent to the locker,
but rather scanned while you wait and then all will be well.
