ClamAV False Positive

Today my QNAP NAS daily ClamAV scan job reported that it had found a virus in a file called which is part of the Office 2010 install DVD ISO (which I’ve  extracted on my NAS). The full path to the file is as follows:


ClamAV thinks that the file is infected with BC.Exploit.CVE_2013_3940 (A Windows GDI remote code execution vulnerability)

I have reported the false positive to ClamAV.

This was with virus definitions dated 2015/04/08 18:35.

UPDATE 2015-04-10: This is resolved as of virus definitions dated 2015/04/09 18:51
