AVG flags FlashUtil10a.exe as Trojan horse virus

This morning, I began getting reports that AVG antivirus on multiple machines on multiple networks began flagging FlashUtil10a.exe as the PSW.Generic6.AQPD Trojan Horse virus. I’m assuming this is a false positive, even though I would equate anything made by Adobe as a virus. I’ll update this post as soon as I learn more about this condition.


The Register now has a story about this being a confirmed false alarm. Update your definitions and the warnings should go away.


Today’s false-positive comes after AVG recently offered a free, one-year license to customers affected by another recent false-positive.
