Reporting this in case any other SB S&D users out there have this (trying not to specifically name the software, and yet identify it -- see graphic below).

I just updated my SB S&D data base yesterday and when I started L4 today I got this message.

Any other SB S&D get this?

I'm going to report this to SB S&D as a false positive, but wanted to put it here too.

(BTW, I clicked "Allow this process to run." I do NOT want to delete the Logos4 indexer!)

Richard I'm going to bet the farm that this is a false positive.  Try scanning your PC with Malwarebytes just to make sure that something malicious has not infected your Logosindexer.exe file.  Now that's just evil to infect a Logos .exe file!!! LOL

If something is there Malwarebytes will find it for sure, if not you can safely rest in the finding.

Logos 5, Windows & Android perfect together....

It's probably just that they haven't encountered Logos's indexer ever before so they don't have it in their database of known safe programs yet. They will appreciate receiving a heads up from you so that they can distinguish it in the future from something else that might coincidentally have the same digital signature in the first few bytes.

I've had this program for a while and this is the first time it's caught the indexer as malware (zanga is adware, not spyware, BTW). I'm pretty sure it's related to the recent database update, for the anti-malware program, that I did yesterday. So it's a first time catch for something marked bad, that is known good. There could be something in the code of the indexer process that matches some signature code in zanga, but I'm not enough aware of how this program catches these kinds of things to know for sure.

Either way, I reported this to the company as a false positive, after checking the file with the other program mentioned, plus a industry standard anti-virus/malware program that begins with the letter "N."

I offer the following in good faith, in case its useful. I don't have the named anti-virus toolset, so don't have any specific answers. Just an idea if its useful.

In my installed Logos4, at one time I got some kind of warning as Logos4 attempted to modify the autorun settings so that the Logos Indexer would autorun after a system reboot. I can't remember the details, but Symantec Norton360 gave me some kind of alert. Not sure if this is even remotely connected with whatever triggered the detect on your system.

So, if its helpful ...

Regards.
