F-Secure (VirusScanner): Validate_m320.exe blocked due of reason: W32/Malware.a!fsmind

Hi,
My F-secure virus scanner claims that validate_m320.exe has a malware and blocks the file. Is this false alarm?

Hi @Jouni_Helenius

Yes, it’s a false alarm from an overzealous virus scanner. It is safe to ignore this alarm and use the validate_m320.exe program/executable.

Good luck with the course and if you have any other issues, please don’t hesitate to ask!

Thanks,
F-Secure checked file and it is clean as you mentioned!
