Virus alerts when downloading source from SVN

Olli Aro
Administrator

Hi all,

 

I am trying to download trunk from SVN for the source code, but my anti virus keeps popping up. Apparently the following files are infected with Generic.Botget.43BB545D:

 

runprebuild.bat

\.svn\tmp\text-base\runprebuild2008.bat.svn-base

 

Should I just ignore the virus scan or is the SVN repository genuinely infected?

 

Regards,

 

Olli

You should be able to ignore these warnings since those are just text files.

(DISCLAIMER: I am not response if your machine is subsequently infected with the OpenSim virus :)

Forget the warnings or add the opensim folder to the ·exceptions". It isn't for the source code but for the included libraries: any library that "opens" a tcp/udp socket is treated as a virus.

I had the same problem three weeks ago, and after doing a simple test creating a http .NET server it was detected as a virus so... maybe the "heuristic algorythms" used for the antivirus are too much "heuristic".

Oh... and some PHP extensions and Apache modules are "virus" too, even some original printer drivers.

Ok, thanks for this. I turned my scanner off and downloaded the source ok, so I have a copy now.

 

However, I am infected with a virus called OpenSim!! The project looks great and is very addictive, so I must be infected J

 

Regards,

 

Olli
