IDP.Generic message on "sbmongoose.exe"

by elriba Fri Oct 04, 2019 9:31 pm

I just purchased and downloaded SpiderBasic 2.22. I'm using it on windows 7, 32bit.

I tried to compile the "desktop.sb" example. It compiles and runs, but I get an antivirus message. I am using Avast. The error I get is:

"We have blocked sbmongoose.exe because it was infected with IDP.Generic"

What should I do?

You can upload the exe to VirusTotal (https://www.virustotal.com) to use multiple scanners to check if it is infected. But I bet this is a false alarm.

Thanks to all. I added it as an exception...

Got me scared!
