Re: Kaspersky Security flagging fldigi 4.1.14/60

Mark Bond
 

What I found interesting, is that Kaspersky actually identified the specfic trojan downloader it found, and found a trojan in the laptops system memory when it performed it's advanced disinfection. I ended up using Kaspersky because a few years back it identified and removed Malware that Bitdefender didn't notice. That malware actually affected the laptop's functionality.

There is something different in 4.1.14/60 that's triggering the quarantine actionthat is not present in 4.1.14, for now, I'm using the release version...

Re: Using an M710 (new thread inspired by Bejoy's thread).

Harry Keith
 

As Bejoy mentioned, this discussion isn't really fldigi related.  But since you ask.

First, I have fldigi up and running on my PC.  I've even successfully printed a weatherfax by running a WebSDR at max volume and setting up fldigi to listen on the microphone.  Unfortunately, I have yet to make a successful read on the boat.  And until I figure out a way to input audio into the M710, and to drive the PTT, it will remain one-way, with no ability to do all the other fldigi goodness.  I hope Bejoy, since he has the same radio, will be helpful.

DOSBox is a very M710 specific thing.  There is a "clone" program made by ICOM that allows a laptop to read and write to the 200 or so frequency memories in the M710, making it MUCH easier to set it up.  However, it is an ancient and unupdated program that runs under DOS and makes hardware calls to the COM port -- making it incompatible with Windows and incompatible with USB serial ports.  DOSBox apparently solves many of those problems, allowing the clone program to run and at least talk to the radio (but in my case so far, not read from the radio).

The M710 is an old radio.  It its day, it was huge.  There was a very active users group on Yahoo -- but it died and did not resurrect in Groups.io, and I can't even get admitted to the old group so I can read the archives (even if the files are all gone).

Since Bejoy has the same model radio and is successfully using it, I'm hoping he can help with radio-specific configuration and use, not only with fldigi but with the radio in general.  And at his suggestion, we are taking this offline.

Bejoy,  I was following your discussion on a separate thread, but did not want to derail that thread.

I cannot add any value to your issue, as I am still very much learning. But I also have an m710, and am trying to learn its operation. I would love any thoughts you might have.

In particular, I am interested in your connection to the transceiver.

I am currently trying to get the icom control program to work.  I have it running in gas box, and the transceiver clearly is receiving the commands. However, it does not respond back, so the clone operation does not work. I have been trying to get a calm sniffing program to work, without success.

With the demise of the Yahoo m710 group, I've been unable to access that trove of information, for any of the programs that used to be available there.

Would love any information you have to share.

I should also note that while I have a ham license and the ship's station license, I have yet to successfully transmit or receive anything of value (no weatherfax, no weather reports, no cruisers nets). I am very much a newbie!

Thanks for the reply. I confirmed the connection as the radio display would turn "REMOTE" when fldigi starts. Also I ran a serial port monitoring software to sniff the data transfer on the com port and I see the protocol data. But once the initial sequence is done, there is no further communication. The port remains open. No other software is running, that uses the same port.

In the settings page, the 'Use hamlib' checkbox won't stay checked. I looked at the debug dialog and there's an 'hamlib io_error 88 show_dialog' line. The rigctl command line tool (from a separate hamlib installation) works fine too.

Windows update problems-was: Kaspersky Security flagging fldigi 4.1.14/60

Michael Coslo <mjcn3li@...>
 

Changed subject line to avoid hijacking the thread.

I’ve had similar problems with JTAlert. Windows insists that it is a Trojan, and you have to go into Defender and allow it through - Although last time Windows updated our shack computer, Defender took a scorched earth policy and deleted JTAlert and it’s install program. And just to keep me “safe”, it deleted everything in the Downloads folder.

Redownloading in the normal sane manner wasn’t working, so I had to turn off all security, then download it and allow it, then reinstall, then and only then turn defender back on. Foolishness to bypass all security to allow an innocent program to install in th ename of security.

I hope we don’t have to start doing the same with fldigi.

But I would like to ask - how do the people that run health and welfare deal with Windows? I’ve had updates nuke sound card drivers and USB serial drivers on our Icoms. I actually had to kill Windows update service in order to insure that radios that worked one day would work the next. To me Update Russian roulette fals virus flags and determining the functioning of health and welfare services is 100 percent unacceptable.

For what it's worth, after I saw the message about the Trojan in this release, I uploaded the file to virustotal.com and it detected that same problem, from two different anti-virus engines. Most of them did not report it however, and neither did my local copy of Bitdefender.

Thank Cliff,

I did pass along the info to Dave. Also I did re-download the file and Kaspersky quarantines it immediately. The odd thing is after it flagged it this morning part of their disinfection process does a full scan and it found a Trojan in the system memory whatever that means. The laptop is clean now and Kaspersky is happy with 4.1.14 so I’ll just not run the alpha.

Take care,

Yes, the normal text is transmitted without the id. But if I turn on the id it will only transmit the id with no following text, only a dead key.

Does it transmit normally then, i.e. the desired text is transmitted?

Running Windows 10 and Fldigi 4.1.11.  For no reason when I transmit a mode id Fldigi will transmit the id and nothing afterwards, just a dead key signal, no cq, cq de Call Sign is transmitted. I suspect  Windows update is the reason but I can't find it. Any suggestions.
Thanks,
