No no..it's your operating system which is just saying so in fears of being replaced
Bitdefender also flags the URL and program as : Trojan.GenericKD.40916319
I have submitted both the program and URL as a false positive for review.
Trojan.Generic sounds very ehh generic. My guess is that it triggers some heuristic in the virus scanner.
To be fair the tool is a bit peculiar.
- Compiled with a non-microsoft compiler
- Using various API calls normally only used by device drivers and system components.
- It contains routines to scan the registery for device names
- And about 80% of the executable consists of embedded firmware images that the virusscanner can't understand.
I don't know how suspicious serial communication routines are nowadays, but it might be enough to nudge the tool over the edge. And the virusscanner goes: No not on my watch!
