Avira Anti-Virus Reports Itself As A Virus

Are you running Avira Anti-virus? Is it detecting the file AESCRIPT.DLL as "TR/Spy.463227?" You aren't alone! A company spokesperson confirmed that a recent signature is the culprit.

According to a post in the Avira Support Forum, the company recently released an new AntiVir Virus Definition (VDF) file which was causing false positives. The VDF file produced scans that would result in the detection of AESCRIPT.DLL as the TR/Spy.463227 virus.

The affected update has already been pulled from circulation and Avira advises that all users should immediately update their definitions to the current version,, which addresses the issue.
