Virus detected when compiling from v1.1.30.00

29 Sep 2018, 02:44

There is a bug during compiling from version v1.1.30.00

Compiling a large .ahk files with Ahk2Exe.exe is blocked by Windows Defender in Windows 10.
The Default compiling with base bin file (.bin): '(Default)' or 'v1.1.30.0 Unicode 32bit' gives a virus .exe file.

This issue wan't there in version v1.1.29.01.

Yeah you should complain to Windows Defender as this is a false positive that we can't do anything about.
When the version changes the binaries change, and your AV might cause issues.

Everyone can send a report to Microsoft telling that they have misidentified a file (false positive). When submitting a file for Microsoft to analyze, they ask you if think the file is or is not malware.
https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/wdsi/filesubmission (use this link).
("Submit a file for malware analysis")

Code: Select all

Do you believe this file contains malware?

Yes

No — this file has been incorrectly detected

Additional information

And until Microsoft correct the false positive problem, you can or your users can make an exception for the file in Windows Defender.

(Add an exclusion to Windows Defender Antivirus)

It happens during the compiling of the (Default) base bin file.

This is the false-positive virus name:
Program:Win32/Unwaders.C!ml

I have submitted the compiler of AHK and the script file to Microsoft, so they can compile and see if it is a false-positive.

Well, I have a similar problem, but I still use the 1.1.29.00 compiler.
I have a script which contains shortcuts to many files I use.
(Excel tables, text files, Word documents, folders).
One time Avira Antivir said it's a virus.
(I tried it right now again and it worked.)

However, all compiled scripts (exe) take several seconds until they get loaded.
This has been mostly the case for some weeks - for me.
When I check the file Ahk2Exe.exe, I don't see anything new/suspicious.
Modified on: 25.05.2018 03:14, file size: 856.064 Bytes

But strangely all compiled exe scripts start with a massive delay.
For this reason I switched completely to ahk-files only.

I have also the massive delay (caused by Windows Defender) during compiling in 1.1.30.00. So I switched back to 1.1.29.01.

Anti Virus software is not magic. The AntiVirus Programs probably still dont know about the new version.
Thats why they make a full scan rather than skipping through the process, because they don't recognize the program.

It has been fixed in the latest definitions of Windows Defender in Windows 10. There is no virus detection at this moment.
You can compile from version 1.1.30.00.
