    DVDFab components reported as threat by Norton Security after update to DVDFab-64 on Jan. 4, 2018

    Today after installing an update that was offered in the usual manner by DVDFab-64 to version DVDFab-64, Norton Security then removed six (6) components of DVDFab and reported them as being Threat name: WS.Reputation.1.

    Something that I find confusing is after coming to the DVDFab Forum to investigate any reports by other members of virus issues with the new version I didn't find any announcement of the release and availability of version

    Curious is the fact that these components were installed 11/22/2017. I originally installed DVDFab-64 version on 11/22/2017 and updated to version on 12/24/2017. I installed the latest version today on 01/04/2018.

    Upon the first execution of the program immediately following the DVDFab-64 update Norton Security reported threats and removed components of DVDFab-64.

    Here are the details of the program threats removed and reported by Norton Security.

    Threat type: WS.Reputation.1 - Insight Network Threat. There are many indications that this file is untrustworthy and therefore not safe.

    Program Name --- Threat Name ------- Date On ----- Last Used -- Norton Users ------- Released ------------------ Risk Level
    record-64.dll---------WS.Reputation.1 - 11/22/2017 - 01/04/2018 - Fewer than 5 user - Less than 1 week ago - Medium
    drmremoval.exe----WS.Reputation.1 - 11/22/2017 - 01/04/2018 - Fewer than 5 user - Less than 1 week ago - Medium
    fabcore_10bit.exe--WS.Reputation.1 - 11/22/2017 - 01/04/2018 - Fewer than 5 user - Less than 1 week ago - Medium
    fabvm.dll--------------WS.Reputation.1 - 11/22/2017 - 01/04/2018 - Fewer than 5 user - Less than 1 week ago - Medium
    filemover.exe--------WS.Reputation.1 - 11/22/2017 - 01/04/2018 - Fewer than 5 user - Less than 1 week ago - Medium
    fileop.exe-------------WS.Reputation.1 - 11/22/2017 - 01/04/2018 - Fewer than 5 user - Less than 1 week ago - Medium

    I have captured a number a number of screens to illustrate the reports created by Norton Security.

    Note that the source of the files are the version upgrade which had been used without any problem for over a month before the update.

    If you downloaded here it's a false positive. Add as an exception in Norton and inform them of the false positive notice.

      As I said before the update was offered by DVDFab-64 upon start-up.

      Can you tell me why there is no announcement of the update? Was it just offered before the update was announced?

      Also because the messages indicated that the components were from an older version ( but dating back to version, I thought the removed components should have been replaced by new versions of the files depending on what files were actually changed by the updates.

      After the problem occurred and 90312-Senior Moderator advised it was a false positive I tried backing up a DVD using option DVD Copy (Full Disc) before restoring the files and the program appears to be working without any issues which leaves me a bit puzzled about what has really occurred in both the update and the threat detection report because Norton claims to have successfully removed all six (6) components.

      And thank you!

        i would say it's something on Norton's end.
        are your virus definitions / antivirus program up to date ??


        • #5
          Yes Virus Definitions are up to date. Restored, Excluded and Submitted all components to Symantec in false positive reports which is no small task for six (6) files.

          Thing is I'd just yesterday scanned the entire drive.

          Figured out all those components probably weren't used during a DVD Copy (Full Disc) and more likely to be used during a file conversion or other operation.

          That means the report was triggered by the download and install but didn't occur until I was restarting DVDFab10(x64) after the update.

          Also there weren't any other files that I saw that had the 11/22/2017 date.

          After all that kind of reluctant to scan the DVDFab10 program folder and sub-directories but know I have to do it.

          If any other components have issues with the anti-virus scan I'll report it here.

            This is a false positive. Please try a full download from the published links rather than from within DVDFab. Can't account for the odd behavior of Symantec, try Malwarebytes Pro instead perhaps (although it has false positives as well occasionally).
