View Full Version : Fixed: New NSIS Media Extension False Positive

2007-02-01, 03:24
Disclaimer: Sometimes people believe that detection of the real trojan NSIS Media Extension is a false positive for the Nullsoft software NSIS. However, there really is adware with the similar name NSIS Media Extension that is a trojan and is very difficult to remove.

In the latest update, however, Spybot falsely identifies the registry key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\IAN as the NSIS Media Extension. AFAIK, I do not have this trojan, but can anyone explain what this registry key is for? Thanks.
