Avast has a freak out, goes on a false positive spree (Download Squad)

Dec 3rd 2009 11:08AM Just because yours didn't get infected, doesn't mean millions of other people didn't get affected. I would say the author of this article definitely pinned the term correctly as a "spree" because it seriously was calling out all sorts of programs constantly as a trojan. That is a spree if it is calling out tons of false positives for no reason. Also, if you read the forums that was posted OUTSIDE of Avast's forum and on Avast's forums, there were many cases of users not knowing what to do because their computer was detecting so many false positives.
