So I have been a console gamer for 30+ years, back since the Atari 2600 days. I recently built my first PC since the Windows 95 days.

I always see my favorite YouTubers using this furmark to test their GPU. I wanted to test mine but I run every single link I download through virustotal. Virustotal flagged furmark as a threat.

Why is this? It doesn't bode too well if your program is flagged as malicious.


I see, one out of 69 scanners.
Looks like a "false positive".

JegX would have to contact the BKAV scanner's developer in Vietnam to correct that. Good luck...


yes it's a false positive. So I won't waste my time to contact each unknown AV dev to update its database. If major AV solutions (like AVG, Avast, BitDefender, Kaspersky, F-Secure, Malwarebytes, Microsoft, etc.) say the software is clean, then you can use to software. 


Also the 1.35 version link is marked as malicious by 3 vendors on Virustotal, including Bitdefender.
What is going on? Is it really false positive?
And Bitdefender blocked me from accessing the download page.



Yes it's a false positive. When I released FurMark 1.35, I uploaded it on geeks3d.com server.
Here is the virustotal report:

After some time I moved the setup.exe to one of my other servers (gpumagick.com). Maybe the path to the exe does not please to some AV tools. The FurMark_1.35.0.0_Setup.exe file is still the same and is safe. It's SHA-256 is abba3e5ee274a0a5a8755e83accae5e2f36671e967ea36d0f445151a0b7cc1fe.
