AVG Update Attacks iTunes

AVG Update Attacks iTunes
 
Buy iTunes from Amazon Cyber Monday and Black Friday Now
 

Reports have come out that the latest patch to the popular AVG Anti-Virus software is treating iTunes as a virus. If you use both AVG and iTunes, you might want to avoid downloading that patch until a fix comes out. Users on the Apple forums have found that the issue appears to have arisen from the mislabeling of iTunes.dll and iTunesRegistry.dll as harmful files.

A patch fix should be out very quickly. Until then, you can either turn off AVG or add "C:Program Files (x86)ipod" as an exception.

It's a little odd that AVG would make a mistake like this with a program as common as iTunes. The fact that AVG identifies the iTunes dll files as “Trojan horse Small.BOG” makes things even stranger. That identifier doesn't show up anywhere on AVG's website. So why would it appear only for iTunes? Either AVG slipped up big time for no reason, or a disgruntled employee decided to cause some havoc.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
