False virus reports by antivirus software

Post by pepak » Thu 19 May, 2016 17:04

Unfortunately, antivirus companies have reached the conclusion that it is better to raise false alarms than to be precise: A false positive costs them nothing, the whole price is paid by the affected developer, while a missing detection can be seen by their customers as a problem. Unfortunately, there is little a developer can do about it - even if he reports a false positive and even if the antivirus company acts on that report, it will simply return the detection at their earliest convenience.
