Found Moses.exe. Virus or part of .Net? RRS feed

  • Question

  • My Avast Internet Security detected C:\users\james\AppData\Roaming\Moses.exe as a threat and moved it to "chest" (whatever that means). Is it a threat or is it part of Microsoft@.Net?

    BTW, I haven't logged on as James for about three months, as I logon using different credentials.

  • this is not a part of .Net, although some web pages claim otherwise.

    And even if it were, it would certainly not be in the user folder.

    You can upload the file to VirusTotal, which will use multiple AV engines to scan the file.
