Why is AVG detecting LogMeIn Pro as a Trojan?

For a short period of time, LogMeIn Pro was falsely being detected by AVG's Virus Scanner as a Trojan horse virus named Vundo JI. AVG has since issued an update where LogMeIn Pro is no longer detected as a virus.

If you quarantined the LogMeIn Pro file, you can simply take it out of the Virus Vault to restore functionality:

To restore files from virus vault proceed as follows:

  1. Open AVG.
  2. Go to History.
  3. Go to the Virus Vault.
  4. Select logmein.exe, right-click it and click Restore.

If you completely deleted LogMeIn Pro when it was detected, you can restore the host service by reinstalling it. To reinstall LogMeIn Pro, please click the link below to download the host installer:

This will pull down the installer for LogMeIn Pro. When prompted, select the option to reinstall LogMeIn Pro. This will repair and replace any files that were removed by AVG.

To prevent this from re-occurring, please make sure that you update AVG to the latest version, which was released this morning. To update, open AVG and go to Tools > Advanced Settings > Exceptions on the left, add C:\Program Data\LogMeIn as an exception, and restart the host.
