XM Play DLL is adware???
« on: May 06, 2006, 08:37:02 »
This can't be right.  I sent a false positive report to Norton about an XM Play DLL, and got this in response.

Dear Ronald Clifford,

We have analyzed your submission.  The following is a report of our
findings for each file you have submitted:

filename: C:\Program Files\XMPlay\xmp-zip.dll
machine: SUCCESSOR
result: This file is detected as Adware.SurfAccuracy. http://www.symantec.com/avcenter/venc/data/adware.surfaccuracy.html

Developer notes:
C:\Program Files\XMPlay\xmp-zip.dll is an adware


This is with the latest version of Norton Antivirus... it's the first file Norton has EVER detected incorrectly (or I assume it's incorrect anyway)... anyone else have this problem?

[Edit]And what happened to my account?[/Edit]

Norton has given false information several times according to posts and explainations on the internet. They usually are gone after a patch.

I dunno what happened to your account though.
