Hacking tool found

Postby Frederik Seyns » 01. October 2004 23:14

Recently I installed a new antivirus program, Panda Platinum Internet Security. He finds a file, pv.exe, in xamp/apache/bin that is recognized as a hacking tool and so auto-deleted.
The result is that xampp wont close using the xamp_stop.exe button and maybe does more things don't work, I haven't searched any further.

My question: is this realy a hacking tool or is it misrecognized, has it more (important) services that don't work and, maybe a little of the toppic, is there a way to cancel the deleting without disabling my antivirus?

Thanks

BTW More info about the hacking-tool can be found on http://www.pandasoftware.com/virus_info/encyclopedia/ficha.aspx?iddeteccion=97607

You have read the description at "www.pandasoftware.com"?

is there a way to cancel the deleting without disabling my antivirus?

Make a exception in your antivirus software for this programm. Or, install Apache and MySQL as service and forget the XAMPP, Apache, MySQL start/stop files and "pv.exe".

It is a legal tool that allows to list the processes active in a remote computer and end them.


Sounds like it's needed in the case of Xampp. Pandasoft's website seems to be buggy.
