    When downloading the BIOS tool from the downloads area Teclast->X98 Plus->Bios Updates-> X98PlusBIOSUpdateTool (2.7 MiB), Windows Defender detects malware. Trojan:Win32/Spursint.A

    Anyone else had this?

    Anyone else verify this as true or not?

    No, IMHO it’s nonsense, maybe you have incorrect link for downloading or changed hosts at your system…

    False positive, it’s because of the rights this application has to flash a bios. I did get a warning on Google drive it had a virus, but it’s rubbish as it’s the official file from Teclast.

    FYI I had to disable Windows Defender to download the file and then add an exclusion so that it would not quarantine it when opening or extracting in WinRAR.

    If that’s the official files from teclast, why not just post a link to the official files on teclast website ?

    Be careful. If your system is that fragile, then ransomware will easily penetrate your defenses. I recommend you to read this article about google drive ransomware. I guarantee you that you’ll find everything you need in it.
