Attention Panda & WinPatrol Users

If you use WinPatrol (well, if you don't, you should!) and also scan your computer with Panda Internet Security 2007 Software, beware. It seems that Panda is detecting WinPatrol.exe as Dialer.IQQ.

I certainly didn't need Bill Pytlovany, the developer of WinPatrol, to tell me that WinPatrol does not, in any way, shape or form, contain a dialer. However, as illustrated by the screen copy of the scan results at VirusTotal in Panda Claims WinPatrol is a Virus, Panda has a incorporated a false/positive in the definitions they are currently using.

So, don't panic if you see WinPatrol.exe identified as Dialer.IQQ by Panda. Add it to your ignore list and notify Panda that they have a false/positive in the definitions.
