We attempted to download the XENTPVX.2.2_esdm_win32.zip file from the support site.

We were using the current version of Chrome, which now, seems to have an antivirus checker, the download failed with a virus warning.

We then successfully downloaded the file using Firefox.

We then ran an antivirus scan using our Sophos anti-virus checker which claimed that SVX_DEFAULT-SVX_CONN_SOCK.dll was infected with "Mal/Generic-S".

We filed a trouble ticket with Mentor, they (quickly) replied that they do not have viruses or malware in their downloads, that we must have been infected via some other method.

Our systems were not infected, only the download file contained the malware.


Two different threat detection systems think that there is malware in the download.

I don't have any idea what the actual threat is.


Just be cautions.
