CalmTK calls file nc.jar a VIRUS

Asked by Sturdyhart

I just installed ClamTK Ver 4.25 on my system (Ubuntu 10.04.3 LTS \n \l), and ran a recursive scan. It searched and found one file nc.jar and called it a VIRUS. It was located in the /home/rick/.icedteaplugin/cache/http/ directory
I'm not too sure what I should do with this file as it seems legit to me?
Can you help me to determine if I should throw it in the trash or not?

Thank you.

You are correct - it could be legit. If you'd like another opinion, you can submit that file to or .

Note that if you believe it to be a false positive, please submit it by clicking Ctrl-Y in ClamTk, and report it as a false positive.

I was unable to get a real jar file by visiting that site, so I cannot verify it or not for you.
