Security scan error..

Technical Support
File: Scan-64.dll

Source:http://eu.scan.worldofwarcraft.com/update/scan-64.dll

goes to: c:users/public/games/World of Warcraft WoW-64.exe

my security scanner (norton or avast should check) gives me an error that the file is either very new or just not many people in the world that use norton have the file (it literally says that)

It recommends I stop downloading the file so at first I tried ignoring it and download it but the next day the same error bumped up so I didn't download the file and that's been going on for a week now..
ya had the same thing i use avast
You know how to solve it?
I have the same problem here :/
What to do what to do..
It also came up with a second file for me like yesterday another file joined that que.. I downloaded that one I think so I duno if it'll be coming back but the other one still does as far as I'm aware..
I just got the same error but a quick check on the Blizzard US support forum shows it's an authentic bliz file.
Same problem here.
Update your virus definitions.
Having the same problem
similar problem here (I live in EU, play on EU server, Win7-64bit, 32-bit-wow-client, Comodo Internet Security)

Comodo Internet Security finds scan.dll.new in the world of warcraft folder
it classifies as a threat: "Packed.Win32.MUPX.Gen@129019204"

not sure what to do...
Seems like Blizz has some things to fix? I duno.. i trust blizz though I just accept them..
Got the same. I just pressed ok to abort the connection and it was fine to login. Still scared if some malware intercept my login!
Yeah I got the same fear thats why I'm so freaked out about it..
Googling about it it looks like the same thing popped up in the past - as a false positive. My antivirus hasn't given any warning whatsoever, but I'm on ESET. If I had to bet I'd say it's just the same thing, false positives aren't very common but still happen.

What's a false positive? I'd be scared of a true negative!

What's a false positive?

A false positive is when your anti-virus program incorrectly marks something as being malicious.

The best thing to do is restart your computer and make sure it's clean.

One way is to follow this guide by MVP Shammoz;

If after all of those scans nothing turns up - it's a false positive. Set your anti-virus software to consider the game a trusted application by marking the game folder as an "exception" or "exclusion" and it should stop. If it persists I'd recommend getting a better anti-virus program. Avast has never caused me any problems.

The reason I recommend running a thorough check to make sure your computer is clean is that it's always possible an existing infection has contaminated some of the files in your World of Warcraft folder.
Then go report the false positive to your anti-virus program's support team?

It'll achieve a lot more than using profanity on Blizzard's 12+ forum...
