Running Apache2Triad on WinXP(SP3) as local test server for Drupal. Standalone PC. No router/Windows Firewall On but has a few exceptions enabled.

AVG Anti-Virus 8.0.237 reported the following. Are these false positives or the real deal? I cannot find anything about this particular trojan.

THANK YOU.

Infections File;"Infection";"Result"
C:\Documents and Settings\My Documents\My Downloads\apache2triad\apache2triad1.5.4.exe;"Trojan horse BackDoor.Generic10.AUXV";"Infected"

C:\Documents and Settings\\My Documents\My Downloads\apache2triad\apache2triad1.5.4.exe:\$JN\perl\site\lib\auto\Win32API\Registry\Registry.dll;"Trojan horse BackDoor.Generic10.AUXV";"Infected"

C:\System Volume Information\_restore{21EA42AB-7DD7-4868-AF4D-33153271D375}\RP813\A0163969.dll;"Trojan horse BackDoor.Generic10.AUXV";"Moved to Virus Vault"

PostScript:

Note that I deleted the subject files and downloaded edge version apache from sourceforge again. AVG is, once again, reporting the above files in the same manner. I can't imagine that the new download would be trojanized.

I'd very much like to know if anybody else is getting a similar virus checker response.

I was told by someone associated with AVG that while it may not be a real infection, a port door is being used and "could" be a backdoor but that does not mean that it's a bad thing..just something to be aware of. Boy, that wasted me about a week's worth of time. Ticked me off. Seems like they could be the one's who build the exception into their database rather than the end user.
