False Positive Detection of Floating License Server

Recently Materialise got notified that certain anti-virus packages reported a suspected malware infection in FLS  

Subsequently, we tested the product against a total of 61 AntiVirus applications. Common AntiVirus vendors (e.g. Microsoft Defender, McAfee, NortonAV) do not report the product as infected, nor with the specific malware. Detailed validation also confirmed that no infection is or was present.

We have found 4 AntiVirus vendors (Cyren, Yandex, Zoner, F-Prot) that return an incorrect suspected infection alert. We have contacted the relevant vendors for whitelisting and expect this to be done from their next database update.

Later versions of FLS have been updated to ensure they no longer trigger this alert and additional anti-virus vendors are now being validated as part of our release process.
