MessenPass false positives increased to 17

As I predicted in my previous post about MessenPass false positives , the number of false positives alerts in the new version of MessenPass increased to 17, according to VirusTotal report.

The new false alerts are:

a-squared - Trojan.Generic!IK
AntiVir - SPR/PSW.Messen.DC
Antiy-AVL - PSWTool/Win32.Messen.gen
Comodo - UnclassifiedMalware
Fortinet - HackerTool/Messen
