Trojans found by TrojanHunter in popular software!

Trojan Hunter found these while scanning my computer and these programs were downloaded right off of the programmers website the first being Microsoft and the second being Sysinternals.

Microsoft SDKs Windows v7.1

Found trojan file: D:\Program Files\Microsoft SDKs\Windows\v7.1\Bin\graphedt.exe (Agent.15600)

SysinternalsSuite

Found trojan file: C:\Program Files (x86)\SysinternalsSuite\Dbgview.exe (Agent.15901)

TrojanHunter v5.3
build 994

Just thought I'd post this since those shouldn't be there....

Could be a false/positive ... check each file by uploading to Virscan and scanning them VirSCAN.org - Free Multi-Engine Online Virus Scanner v1.02, Supports 37 AntiVirus Engines!

Thanks Jacee I'll do that before quarantining them, I'm hoping that's the case, I would hate to think that they were bad...I'll post back the results...

Microsoft=Scanner results : 3% Scanner(s) (1/37) found malware!
Sysinternals=Scanner results : 3% Scanner(s) (1/37) found malware!

and both were McAfee=PWS-SpyEye!env.a

Kind of a bummer I trust my TrojanHunter it's usually is on and even at 3% it's not worth the risk in my opinion...My outpost logs show that the sdk program has been accessing the internet without me touching it so into quarantine they will both go....

No I don't I use outpost security suite and use a number of other anti-malware to scan on a weekly basis but now I'm thinking that running some of these things sandboxed or downloaded sandboxed and scanned by the online virus scanner as well. I've run into quite a few programs from reputable sites that have had infections probably and most likely put there cause their programs get hacked by people and thats their way of tracking them. All in all since I don't hack I feel it's an invasion of privacy..
