Some Virus scanners are erroneously reporting DSBrick Trojan in Nintendo DS homebrew.

It has recently come to our attention that some Virus Scanners are flagging all DS applications built with devkitARM as the DSBrick trojan. This is due to the signature they use being insufficient to determine the difference between standard homebrew applications and malicious code. All applications built with devkitARM share the same startup code so obviously some virus
scanners are detecting this rather than any malicious code.

If you are using a virus scanner which flags most, if not all, of the provided examples as a Trojan please (1) Report the false positive to the company which provides your scanner and, (2) Use the contact form to tell us which scanners are giving false positives.
