Re: UISS_Setup.exe is dangerous so Chrome has blocked it

Peter Stover (KD4QNA)

To download the file, I turned OFF security in W10 settings. It downloaded with no problem. After the download, I turned ON security once again. Seems to be working fine with no problem.

Hello Peter,

I, once again, am seeing the same 'malicious object detected' in Kaspersky and it deletes the file marking it as dangerous.

I've already reported this but no-one seems interested.

I am not an academic - clearly Guy is a very clever individual - but I did spend many years assisting my IT clients with malware
detection and file recovery ... even from ransomware!

The 'data0005' component of uiss.exe is showing as infected, but I am certain it's a 'false positive' and can be ignored.
Virus detection started by looking at their signatures, but there are too many new ones appearing now so developers use
heuristics - virus like activity - to make detections now. Sometimes they are over cautious!

I have run MBAM and ESET separately on the UISS-.exe file and they report it as clean.

Bizarrely; I believe that Chrome uses the ESET engine .... so why it shows it as a problem I'm flummoxed.

I hope there may be something useful in this and it has helped.

I've certainly had no help on this site when I asked several questions about a SatGate I tried to set up many. many
months ago!

P.S. Switching off AV as a solution to these issues is not recommended!
