    TMP files being detected by AntiVirus

    Apprentice

      We support a few hundred computers and almost daily our Antivirus application (Sophos) detects a similiar file (slightly different random filenames).  I've contacted Sophos for alternatives but was curious if others have had to deal with this and what they did.

       

       

      File "C:\Windows\Temp\TMP00005B02986749D1AE3D58DD" belongs to virus/spyware 'Mal/VBDrop-G'.

       

      I understand we can add an exception to ignore .TMP file or ignore that virus definition but our security team has concerns about those options.

       

      Thank you, Jonathan
