2) Message boards : Problems and Help : trojans on boinc/primegrid? (Message 17849)

Which AV program are you using? In the past, various BOINC project applications have been reported as viruses that were actually fine...the AV program just detected a false positive. As I recall, this used to be somewhat frequent with AVAST and sometimes Norton.

For example, see here


It's most likely a false positive. I just started using McAfee enterprise edition, plus malwarebytes and virusbusters. Pretty intense stuff. I'm sure its ok, but you can't be too careful these days.

So I am going to college so I decided to take a prolonged break from primegrid :( (im still testing numbers manually tho)

Anyway, I got some really good anti-virus and anti-malware software from the college and ran the scan.

It found and deleted FIVE trojan viruses that are attributed to BOINC and more specifically PRIMEGRID!!!!!

Can someone explain this?


by the way, the trojan looks like: Artemis! [and then a bunch of numbers in hexadecimal form]
it was found in the "wrapper" files of the various primality testing programs.

Posted 4284 days ago by sab
I just looked on my account today and it said I found a prime! The only problem is I can't find out what prime it is. I clicked on the blue "1" and it said I didn't find one. I also checked the recently found primes list. Is there any reason why my number is not showing up?

I think I figured it out. I needed to have LLR in the same file directory as NewPGen! Thanks for your help!

I am using fixed n sieving, so I'm using the right software I believe.


I Still cannot get the LLR program to work. It says "couldn't open service control manager..." I tried 1 and 2 for the imput line and the LLR icon turns green for a second, but then turns red again (IDLE).

Posted 4286 days ago by sab
Ok, this brings me to my next question. I have sieved some numbers with NewPGen 2.82 and saved it to a file. I then downloaded LLR 3.7.1c Now, I should be able to use the sieved file from NewPGen and upload it into LLR. The only problem is I have no idea what "starting line number" means. I tried various numbers to mess around and I got the output: "choose test/input data to test more numbers" which is absurd because I have 1732 numbers to test.

Help would be appreciated, thanks
