Hi,
I downloaded the "hyp_top-up_spreadsheet_-_v11-53.xlsm" file yesterday and overnight my Nas Virus Scanner has reported:
Antivirus scanner found a threat (Doc.Dropper.BabyShark-6879615-0) in the file "hyp_top-up_spreadsheet_-_v11-53.xlsm"
Has anybody else had a problem?

We've had a couple of false-positives over the years, so these things crop up from time to time.

11.53 isn't the latest version though, so can you please tell me where you've downloaded that from?

We're on 11.72 for the Excel version on our website here - http://lemonfoolfinancialsoftware.weebly.com/hyp-top-up.html

If you've downloaded something from somewhere else, then you'll understand that it's difficult for us to certify anything at all at that point...

Just for completeness, I've downloaded the 11.72 Excel version from our site above, and ran it through my own COMODO virus-scanner and also the latest MalwareBytes software, with no issues reported.

I've also ran it through the on-line Kaspersky virus-checker here, with no problems reported - https://virusdesk.kaspersky.com/

Cheers,

Itsallaguess

Thanks for your very quick reply and my apologies for causing you problems. I can't check the files now as I have already deleted them but I remember they had yesterday's date stamp on them. I am sure I got it from the Weebly site, maybe I landed on a cached page somehow!
But thanks for checking.

It is actually still possible to download the .zip for 11.53 from Weebly if you know the right url to use, it's still there in the 'uploads' folder. There are no links on the site that point to in though. With a bit of detective work I found out its name and url and have just downloaded it.

Odd thing, the file in the .zip is an .xls file, not an .xlsm as shares4me2's download was. This suggests it may have been downloaded from elsewhere. The hyp_top-up_spreadsheet_-_v11-53.xls that I downloaded is passed as clean by all the major AV names at VirusTotal, with just two names I've never heard of (TACHYON and Zoner) reporting (probably false) positives.

Thanks Bree - that's very helpful, and also useful to get an independent view on things too.

Cheers,

No problem at all - we're always keen to hear of any issues with these files, so something like this, even if it turns out to be a false-positive as is likely in this case, always needs raising and us being given an opportunity to investigate.

If you use the URL link below, that should link to the Weebly page with the latest 11.72 Excel version on it, so I'd be happy if you could download that and let me know if there''s any issues with it, and your NAS virus-checker?

http://lemonfoolfinancialsoftware.weebly.com/hyp-top-up.html

Given that my own investigtions align with Bree's separate checks, and both come back as showing no issues, then I'll assume everything is OK and this is a false-positive, but I'd be keen to hear how you get on with the latest version linked above either way.

Cheers,

Itsallaguess

Sorry not to get back about this earlier, I have been a bit busy with end of year stuff.
I downloaded the latest version again and opened it etc. and have left the NAS for a couple of days to do what it does and nothing more has come up. So I really can't work out how I came to download the wrong version last time and apologies for causing you all time checking it. I will just have to put it down to a very senior moment of which I seem to have many nowadays.

Great news, and thanks very much for coming back and letting us know.

Please don't worry about any hassle - it's absolutely right that you should want to raise this issue here, and I'm glad that we were able to help and find out there was no underlying issue with the file.

In addition to that, I hope you enjoy your use of the tool!

Cheers,

Itsallaguess
