Malware found on Dell website,was false postive


A new malware was reported by the users browsing DELL website.The malware report started coming in after the users started downloading a specific DELL driver from the website.

dell01

 

Clicking on download started showing red alert from AVAST.And the reason was hidden in the header of the driver.The driver was supposed  to be signed by a digital certificate but it was not signed .The digital certificate helps to identify the individual to the company which has released the app or any other electronic material .

The driver also showed the Sality, a type of malware that infects the Windows  systems.So one can say that the file was uploaded by mistake without checking it.Now its with DELL,what they want to do with the specific driver.
