I have been receiving online notices to upgrade to Verizon Internet Security. I have declined simply for the reason that I have a very good and highly efficient security system in place. Ironically I got an alert from my security system the other day that an attempt was made to infect my computer with malware and the source was Verizon In-Home Agent. By some devious chance, this wouldn't be a despicable attempt by Verizon to enduce me to sign up for your security system? If so, I am very disappointed and outraged that Verizon would stoop so low. I am giving you the benefit of the doubt, but it is highly ironic and will affect my decision when renewing my contract next Febuary.
As SinCara said, a false positive.
Actually happens fairly often when Anti-virus software looks at other Anti-virus software. It sees the files with the Virus signatures and thinks it sees a virus. Most of these software eventually work out a way to recognize each others signature files so they don't calse these positives.
when Kaspersky showed the infected malware it was In Home Agent.I don't know about false positive or any technical terms or whatever may be. I am just saying this is what they detected as the malware. I uninstalled InHome Agent and haven't had a problem since. Could it be possible that it was a trojan that infiltrated under InHome??
I see I'm not the only one dealing with this.
See my Verizon post:
Funny how my McAfee from Verizon and your Kaspersky are both detecting it as a Trojan.
I also don't use Windows Defender.
So, what does Hubrisnxs think now? Seeing as they are the only person who responded to my post.
