Hi everyone, Premise: I am using Resilio to share an encrypted folder on multiple computers. One of these computer is a server running 24/7. On this server, the folder is a secret folder with its ERO key. On the other computers files are in plain text, so to say as they are mostly videos. All computers run Bitdefender as antivirus. Nature of the problem: On the server, my antivirus (Bitdefender) found a virus in this ERO folder (Trojan.Ciusky.Gen.13). It may be a false positive as the antivirus didn't detect it on the other computers. But the fact it wasn't detected on the other computer when I ran the scan may simply be because through the synchronisation, the Trojan had already been deleted on them as I ran the scan only after having been alerted by the warning on the server hosting the ERO version of the folder. Questions/Problems: 1-If it's a false positive, then some files have been mistakenly destroyed in this folder. And since it's on the ERO folder on the server, I can't even find out which file(s) have been deleted to go get them back in the .sync hidden folder. 2-If it's not a false positive, how can Bitdefender scan encrypted files? Next: I'm going to get files I know will trigger the antivirus, like the files "Vault 7" by WikiLeaks or the NSA tools released by Shadow Brokers. I'll do a similar experiment with an ERO folder and let you know how it goes. But this time, if the antivirus is able to read the ERO files, it's going to raise some serious questions. If some of you guys want to participate in the experiment, I'll share the ERO key with the Vault 7 and Shadow Broker files here. Thanks,
Since some months back I've encountered my QNAP NAS totally unresponsive once a week, needing a reboot to be usable again. With help from QNAP's support, I've narrowed the problem down to the Sync app in combination with the antivirus scan provided by QNAP: - I have the antivirus scan scheduled to run once every week. One of the folders in the scan job is synced by the Bittorrent Sync app on the NAS. - After some hour of antivirus scanning, before the antivirus reports a finished scanning, the NAS becomes impossible to reach on the network. It happens every time, and the NAS has to be rebooted. No logs show any direct clues to what happened. - If I disable the Sync app, though, the antivirus scanning jobs always finish without a fault! - If I re-enable the Sync app, the NAS hangs again at every scan job. I don't know if QNAP or Sync (or both) is to blame for this error, but it makes Sync much less useful and reliable. Worth noting is that this error started appearing some 6 or 12 months ago, so it was introduced in some software update from Sync or QNAP, probably during early 2016 or so. I have regularly updated the NAS and Sync several times the last year. It should be mentioned though that I still run one of the last versions of Bittorrent Sync before the rebranding to Resilio, so I haven't tried out the last version and due to various bad experiences I am not currently planning on installing it. This is more of a bug report than a cry for help.
Tried to convince my neighbor to install sync to send me a big file. But he claimed his AV blocked it as Unsafe, "WS.Reputation.1". So no transfer took place :-p He's a legal customer and get definition updates from Norton/symantec and such. Same scenario as here http://forum.bittorrent.com/topic/31710-bittorrent-client-update-marked-unsafe-and-deleted-by-norton-security-suite/ though that was the Bittorrent client, but of course i realize its common code being detected.
