TrendMicro considering java App as ahigly risk thread

Hello

I have a java application which sniff the network traffic, I am using jpcap and winpcap in my application. Application runs fine with AVG antivirus.but when i did deploy my java application at customer environment where customer has Tren Micro Antivirus.
At that customer end trend micro is repotting my Java Application as high risk thread and also consider as dialup app which is trying to accessing the other pcs. But in actual it really not like that its only sniff the traffic which comes on that particular pc's LAN Card.
What could be the possible reason for that as with AVG antivirus it working fine but with Treand Micro Antivirus it considering the highly risk thread

Plz let me know its possible reason and solution


Thanks

Re: risk

Each antivirus vendor has his own logic and rules.

Luckily, all their programs have something like an exclusion list, where you can tell them that a certain program isn't a thread at all and there's no need to check it. If your customer trusts you when you say it's harmless, they just do that.

Hello
Excluding the application is last possible solution but what could be the possible solution that my application not consider as highly thread by Trend Micro.
I have doubt that if my customer don't allow my application to exclude form virus thread. Then what should I need to do.

Re: Trend

Wel;, we're not Trend, so we can't do anything about it. The only one who can is Trend. Just contact their headoffice in Japan, or their office in your country.
