BitDefender solution for flagging Windows 64-bit files as Trojan.FakeAlert.5

Posted by 23 March, 2010 (1) Comment

Happened with ESET’s NOD32 once when everything was being flagged as Kryptik.JX trojan but this time its BitDefender, they pushed an update file that rendered Windows 64-bit systems useless since many were falsely flagged as Trojan.FakeAlert.5 and moved to quarantine. This might have left many users with a useless non-bootable Windows or other problems. Here is the solution to fix the false alarm by BitDefender which detects important files as Trojan.FakeAlert.5.

The BitDefender products effected were: Home user, BitDefender Business Client and BitDefender Security for File Servers.
