"";"The file is signed with a broken digital signature, issued by: iAnywhere Solutions., C:\Program Files (x86)\Intuit\QuickBooks 2009\dbextclr11.exe (9384)";"Infected"
I have read several older posts that seemed to indicate that "broken digital signature" was not an issue, that detection of this was turned off by some past release in certain circumstances, and then I found posts that seemed to indicate that the presence of such an error was a legitimate concern. Which is it? Problem or something to be ignored?
I have downloaded the latest updates and have a new scan running. I'm attaching a couple screen captures. What action shall I take next?
If we can ignore it as "not a threat", then why can't AVG? Why is AVG bothering to check for something that's not a threat, anyway? And most importantly, how do I stop AVG from bombarding me with these useless and meaningless warnings?
A file with a broken digital signature could mean the source file has been tampered with. AVG is merely alerting you to this, so you don't inadvertently introduce a compromised file or executable to your "clean" system. This way you can decide if the file is legitimate or not.
