I was doing a virus scan of some mods which I downloaded. I got a virus report from Norton Internet Security 2011 on Gerra's UIELEMENTS.EXE in:

UOP_Tropical_V1.3.10.zip
UOP_Vanilla_V1.6.zip

Does anyone know anything about this particular executable?

Thanks.

Check the Atari forum.

Looks like some AVs might think it is.

For me, it would depend on where I downloaded it from. I have never had a problem for Danibs links.

I tested UIELEMENTS.EXE via www.virustotal.com. 20 of 40 AV scanners classified it as serious malware. That's good enough for me. As far as I could tell looking at the various documentation, it serves no purpose other than possible completeness of Gerra's collection. So, I simply removed it from the zips.

geras mod are made using a patch program that can go around cd protection
AV`s dont like that
the program is marked as mal ware
and some of the files (patch files) it makes get the same marking

AV work by looking for a sig
if the prog has it its a virus lots of false positive that way
