OpenTherm Monitor Virus warning

Postby Peterv » Wed Jul 08, 2015 8:34 am

Hi,
I've tried to download the Otmonitor.exe today, my Virus protection warns for a Variant.Graftor.Elzob.25258 virus. And don't alow me for downloading it. Could be a false but then again, you never know. Any CRC check available or help?

I've just build the gateway and would like to get it all operational.

OTmonitor is an executable with an attached file archive. Some simplistic virus scanners consider that a sign of a virus. You may want to get a better virus scanner (or a better OS, that is less susceptible to viruses :P).

The md5sum of an uninfected otmonitor.exe version 4.2.3.2 is ba2efdf1b0b57d6d92091e29e37bf92c. Does that help?

The URL works fine for me, no 403 forbidden page. Is the forbidden page really from otgw.tclcode.com page? Any restrictive firewall in your office?

I assume it's due to downloading executable file.
I don't know which AV are you using, but most of them are able to make an exception when you really wont to download exe file.

Hi,

Thanks for the confirmation the site is working normal.

I tried all browsers on my laptop, there was no indication the message was from F-secure.
Normally you get a security message from F-secure.

Now I downloaded using my tablet, could not quickly find where to set an exeption on my laptop....
