View Full Version : burutter.dll dectected as a virus
July 10th, 2008, 21:02
I am somewhat concerned that "spybot search and destroy", a program that detects and deletes spyware, adware, etc, detects "burutter.dll" in epsxe as a malware of some kind in its heuristic scan (whatever that is). I tryed to delete burutter.dll but epsxe says it is necessary to function (i swear i have a valid epsxe, it works perfectly). Interestingly, in Spybot's regular scan it doesnt say its a virus or anything, only the heuristic scan does. Spybot also seems to detect some img and other iso asscociated files in its heuristic scan as a threat includiding even my own psx backups and computer game backups, which is very odd. Should I be concerned, or is spybot just "overreacting" Please reply.

Spybot is just being a troll. ignore it.

It's because of that Heuristic (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heuristic_(computer_science)) method. Basicly, for security software, it's a method to detect "new" menaces.... but of course, can lead to false positives.
Security softwares are getting pretty paranoid. >.>
