Virus warning when downloading WinSQL
Recently a few users have contacted us regarding a possible virus warning message when downloading WinSQL.
This is a false alarm
Synametrics Technologies, Inc. guarantees against any malware/virus in their software. WinSQL's installer (WinSQLSetup.exe) is
digitally signed by Synametrics. You can always check the authenticity of any downloaded file by confirming its digital
signature. This is done by right clicking
and selecting Properties
from the pop-up menu. You will
see a tab for Digital Signatures
if the file has been signed. The following image displays this tab for WinSQLSetup.exe.
Synametrics Technologies, Inc. has already filed a false positive request to TrendMicro
to remove WinSQL's installer from their database. The following image is a reply received from Symantec confirming they have removed it.
We are not sure how long it takes to get the actual signature removed from their individual products.
