Upload aborting virus detected

#1 Post by Philippeguerindon1 » 2019-02-08 08:55

I have this version of FileZilla Client

Version: 3.40.0

When triyng to upload an auto extractible WinRAR file, I get this message (in French) :

Commande : STOR InterditsCircuitBronze.exe
Réponse : 150 Opening BINARY mode data connection for InterditsCircuitBronze.exe
Réponse : 550 Virus Detected and Removed: Win.Malware.Uztuby-6815912-0
Erreur : Échec du transfert du fichier
Statut : Récupération du contenu du dossier "/Comite_MB"...
Statut : Contenu du dossier "/Comite_MB" affiché avec succès
Statut : Déconnecté du serveur

I have a paid version of WinRAR which is 5.62 and when I try to upload the file, the process stops saying a malware is detected : Uztuby-6815912-0.
With Eset, Kaspersky, TrendMicro, I have no warning at all when inspecting the file.

Is this issue known ?

The error message comes straight from the server. They use an integrated virus scanner that is detecting the EXE stub of WinRAR as Malware. You need to contact server support so they can fix their false positive issue.
No support requests per PM! You will NOT get any reply!!!
FTP connection problems? Do yourself a favor and read Network Configuration.
All FileZilla products fully support IPv6. http://worldipv6launch.org
