    Thumbs down Not a problem -- (Just interesting to me)

    Not sure if this happens to anyone else BUT


    if i try to compile this VERY basic c++ program (was showing someone how cout worked)

    PHP Code:
    #include <iostream>
    #include <cstdlib>
    using namespace std;

    int main () 
    {
        
    cout <<"frggr"//ROFL -- apparently cout <<"frggr"; is malware... makes me smile, my handle is famous :)

        
        
        
    system ("PAUSE");
        return 
    0;
        


    Avast sees it as malware... I tested and it seems that it is the cout<<"frggr"; line that make this happen.

    Anyone know why \\ does this happen to anyone else if they try to compile this.

    More likely that something in the compiled code resembles something in AVAST's definitions, maybe a misplaced confidence in a sequence of bytes common to this code and some malware?

    Yeah, way back in the dark ages I had to write some NetBIOS code (barf). Bing! The virus scanner thought my program was evil. I had to rearrange the code to prevent the false detection.
