There's a file on the disk - autorun.inf
- which when read after the CD is inserted, automatically runs a file - auto.exe
AVG is basically saying it finds auto.exe
to be malware. It could be correct or it could be a false positive. If possible, you need to upload the file to VirusTotal
to see what other scanners make of it.
You can also submit the file to AVG for analysis. Should it prove to be a false positive, they will remove the detection for it.http://www.avg.com/ww-en/faq.num-2343
What operating system is this as the behaviors of autoplay/autorun differ slightly depending on your version of Windows.
