>>> Oops. Avira reports BDS/Backdoor.Gen in link
>> It’s a false positive.
> Avira is known to have many false positives.
A summary of this false positive is here:
It’s called a “Backdoor server” and the test is described as “A
generic detection routine”. It probably flags anything with bind() or
CreateService() in it.
As an aside, resolving avira.com is a good torture test for Deadwood:
* There are for upstream name servers for avira.com
* Two of the upstram name servers are glueless
* One of the two glueless names points to a NXDOMAIN, not an IP
* Only one of the four upstream servers (the other glueless one)
actually replies to DNS queries.
