One of the ReactOS Live CD files is a virus?

Post by Videogamer555 »

Not sure about install CD, but Live CD seems to have a virus. I used RUFUS to burn the ISO to a USB flashdrive. And then my antivirus software blocked a file called clip.exe that it found in the \reactos\system32 folder. Is clip.exe a legitimate program? Or is it malware? Specifically, Norton labeled it as Trojan.Gen.MBT

Well, especially Norton is crap. ^^ Trojan.Gen.MBT means heuristics went haywire again. Clip.exe is the ReactOS Clip Command with code located here https://git.reactos.org/?p=reactos.git; ... 3a;hb=HEAD
ReactOS is still in alpha stage, meaning it is not feature-complete and is recommended only for evaluation and testing purposes.

Norton is utterly crap. Agreed. :)
