Post subject:  virus?

Hello,

I downloaded the free version from the Dip Trace web site and plan to buy the paid version
but this morning my anti virus scan reported a virus "Shooters.exe" in the Dip Trace folder
/users/macbookpro/library/application support/wine/prefixes/diptrace..
It is reported as Backdoor.Generic.325691.

Is it really a virus and I should delete it or is it a legit file from Wine?

Thanks for any advise.

Sounds like a heuristics hit, meaning likely a false positive (the Generic part is a clue). You can upload to VirusTotal.com to scan the file by multiple scanners.

Looks like a heuristics false positive (the Generic part is a tale-tale sign). If you are worried, you can upload the offending file to VirusTotal.com and have it scanned by dozens of virus scanners and get a report back.

Thank you Pedro.
In the mean time Diptrace confirmed that they are not using shooters.exe
I will upload it to the URL you suggested.
