Kaspersky suspicious driver report


[link to this post]
 
My Kaspersky Internet Security 2012 has recently started to report that tbbmeter is trying to download a driver in a hidden way and reports "PDM.Suspicious driver installation". Is this usual or a danger?

Its usual, and seems Kaspersky has decided the packet driver that provides the TCP/UDP splitting is something it does not like.

There is a different driver we will switch too, but it requires a seperate install currently, which is ok for dev use, but not for product roll-out. I need a good clear month to integrate it too.

I hope you can manage this new driver soon. Kaspersky has thrown out tbbmeter about 3 times, so far in the past fortnight, but now it won't even let me re-instal it from a new download. I did get it back twice but no longer.

Have you reported this to Kaspersky as a false positive, as I believe it is their problem not Andrew's? Though he seems prepared to provide a work-around.

There are a large number of people using tbbMeter, with a wide variety of IS systems in place. Only you are reporting a problem, and no-one even joining in here with the same issue

I'm not getting at you, but this does seem odd. It could be that no other K users have yet upgraded, but all the users on all other IS systems?

I've had the same experience, two weeks ago. I uninstalled tbbmeter until this is sorted out, sorry should have posted to make others aware.

I like KIS but this sort of thing seems not unusual and a fix normally appears quickly. Checked Kasp forum today, nothing posted there.

New driver involves spending a fair chunk of real money on the new driver, and then a few weeks integrating it.

So until a lot of other stuff has been done it wont happen.

Well I never. My Kaspersky today(Monday) told me there was nothing wrong with tbbmeter and I should put it back in (again - second time). So, happy again. roj

Thinking further about this Kaspersky re-assurance, it has taken it 3 days (same as last time) to re-think and say 'Put it back'. Seems odd that 'it' got rid of tbbmeter but later changes its mind, almost spontaneously?
