Shh/Updater-B false positive by Sophos anti-virus products


Some Sophos customers have reported detections today of Shh/Updater-B.

Many of these reports involve detections of Sophos's own code, but there are a number of third-party applications which are also being identified.

Sophos would like to reassure users that these are false positives and are not a malware outbreak, and apologises for any inconvenience.

p>If you have Live Protection enabled, you should stop seeing these detections as the files are now marked "clean" in the cloud. (Details of how to enable Live Protection can be found in this knowledgebase article).
