Whatpulse Virus?

I recently decided to try whatPulse. So, I signed up and downloaded the software off the website. However, after scanning the setup with Virustotal, I noticed the following results:

What does this virus do? Is it harmless?

Thanks,

Post your virus log.

Make sure you ONLY scan the whatpulse.exe

I scanned mine with clamwin and its clear.

It’s scanned with like 20 engines. It has a downloader according to Ikarus…

I did scan only whatpulse.exe

Google doesn’t tell me alot about this Ikarus thing, but WhatPulse 1.5x does not download anything, so I could not tell you why Ikarus would tell a different story.

I know that sometimes, viruses on your own machine, or on your ISP’s servers, can infect files you download, even if they’re fine on the server end. I can’t say for sure whether or not that’s what happened, though, since I don’t know what’s going on in your machine right now.

VirusTotal says that WhatPulse.exe is clean for me :slight_smile:

Enough said. You have a problem with your own computer that needs to be solved. I would advise you to run a full system scan.
