Superantispyware detects trojans in Windows installer

Asked by Craig Kendall on 2012-10-19

Attempting to launch the Windows installer for most recent version of Ubuntu my Superantispyware program detected four trojans in the package.

(the two repeats were in different folders)
PYRUN.EXE
PYRUN.EXE
PYLAUNCHER.EXE
PYLC5F.TMP.EXE

Want to verify before going on that the package is okay.

Did you run it from the ISO or did you download the Wubi installer on its own? I recommend you use the ISO. You can mount it if you install MagicDisk (Windows cannot mount ISO files without 3rd party applications, unlike Linux). You can then run the wubi installer there. Remember to MD5 test the ISO you download:

This is a bug in your anti spyware software. PYRUN.EXE is just the Python run time. That's like saying that asp.net is a trojan because it executes code.

Can you help with this problem?
