A variant of Generik.LIIEKMT trojan

Hi Dear Support,
i downloaded peercoin-v0.7.2ppc-win-gitian.zip from peercoin website(https://peercoin.net/wallet.html) and when i scanned it with ESET Internet Security, it found the following thread:
peercoin-qt.exe - a variant of Generik.LIIEKMT trojan
and when i extracted and scanned again, all of .exe files were deleted by ESET.

can u explain please?


Windows antivirus software will look for signature of the file to say it’s legit. This signature is naturally purchased from the Microsoft.

Either manually flag it as legit or use Linux :slight_smile:
