Pilot software except vPilot, SquawkBox, FSInn and XSquawkbox

I am new to this Vatsim network and I was about to run the vatspy.exe file but I then decided to viruscan it on Virustotal.com and one of the "Engines/antiviruses" detected a trojan in the .exe file.

Sorry for asking if this question is stupid or if it has been answered already.

Hi Andreas and welcome to VATSIM!

I have never heard of Virustotal.com so cannot speak to the accuracy of their scans. Assuming that you got VatSpy through the official download site at http://www1.metacraft.com/VATSpy/ it is perfectly safe to use!

Firstly thank you so much for the quick response and for welcoming me.

Secondly, after you replied I actually did some research and figured out that what I was looking at was actually common for this specific antivirus on totalvirus.com

(If anyone wants the details on the virus it was this)

Baidu Win32.Trojan.WisdomEyes.16070401.950

Best regards

Andreas
