    Sophos Detecting ActivBoard Software as Virus

    We've just noticed this moring that Sophos has started detecting part of the ActivBoard software as a virus-infected file. See below for details :-

    File "C:\Program Files\Activ Software\ActivstudioPE3\ACTIVcalc.exe" belongs to virus/spyware 'Mal/VBCrypt-C'

    We've contacted Sophos regarding the problem and are wait to hear back from them.

    This might well be the end of the road for Sophos in our school!

    You could just Authorise that particular application within Enterprise Console. (May be the HIPS scanner that is detecting unusual behaviour).

    This would then update the profiles on all your workstations accordingly.

    Don't know if there's an easy way within the console to authorise an app that's actually been detected specifically as a virus (as opposed to a potentially unwanted app)? We've put an exclusion path into the on-access scanning for now until we hear back from Sophos.
