Security risk found?

Hello,

When I quit rubymine EAP (build 1287), Norton complains about a connection to i4jdel0.exe. I suppose it's a false positive, can you confirm this?

thanks!

Hello erwann,

connection to i4jdel0.exe. I suppose it's a false positive, can you
confirm this?


This file is something that you have running on your local computer. It's
not part of the RubyMine distribution.

For more information, please try googling for i4jdel0.exe

ok, it's strange because it's created exactly when I quit Rubymine

Hello Roman,

I downloaded EAP from http://www.jetbrains.net/confluence/display/RUBYDEV/RubyMine+EAP (I bought the stable 1.1.1 from ComponentSource)

when I start EAP 1.5, it creates a temp folder e4j1A.tmp_dir12265 in C:\Documents & settings\user\Local settings\temp\ and when I quit EAP 1.5, it creates a .tmp file and a i4jdel0.exe in  C:\Documents & settings\user\Local settings\temp\

I'm also seeing this executable get created.  It is a child process to IDEA, and it is created when I shutdown IDEA.

I'm not running rubymine.  I'm running the latest maia eap of IDEA (10762).

Googling i4jdel0.exe didn't turn up anything.  If it's a virus, or even spyware, the net doesn't know about it yet.

I'm also seeing this in a recently downloaded executable of Idea 9.0 Ultimate edition from jetbrains.com....  Searches on Google turn up a bunch of "i4jdel0.exe.. is this malware?" conversations wherein there isn't a consensus of whether it's real malware or not...

The process does shutdown when Idea.exe is shutdown...

As far as I know it isn't a malware, just a part of exe4j Java exe maker which we are using for launching our IDEs based on IntelliJ Platform.
