Avira says fsaddle.dll is malware

Pages: 1
Posted:  05 Sep 2008 00:31
Avira AntiVir Premium Ver 8.1.0.367
Firefox 2.0.0.16
Fireshot v 0.59

While Firefox doing auto update of Fireshot Add On (Sept 4-08), Avira blipped and automatically quarantined _fsaddle.dll_ from the library subfolder of the Fireshot addon folder in Profile Extension folder. Says malware [heuristic] in report.

So this is not in Fireshot folder (double checked!) but a few tests show Fireshot works anyway, at least for simple things I use for like select, crop and save.  Still, a bit uncomfortable to have happen as I very rarely get Avira catching something as otherwise do take a lot of precautions what I do and so on, and being non technical, it is hard to understand why this happens only for Fireshot.

You mean fsaddin.dll, of course.

Anyway, this is strange to hear. FireShot used to have a GUID marked as malware in the past, but now it should be OK with it.

P.S. It should be working OK in Firefox. The problem regards only FireShot for Internet Explorer.

P.S2. By the way, can you do me a favour? I'd like to know whether it's OK with standalone installer of FireShot for Internet Explorer. Could you download it and install at your PC with further checking by Avira?

The link is: screenshot-program.com/fireshot_ie_install.zip
