Title: Trojan at PROGISP
Post by: panoss on December 30, 2019, 05:00:05 pm
I have a USBAsp programmer and I want to program a BIOS ic which I think is corrupted.
The IC is this (https://pdf1.alldatasheet.com/datasheet-pdf/view/458182/EON/EN25F80-75HCP.html) one, an EN25F80-75HCP.
I found that with USBAsp I can use the program 'PROGISP'.
But I checked it with virus total and found that it is infected with a trojan:
[attachimg=1]

So, my question is: with which other software I can program the above mentioned IC (using, of course, my USBAsp as a programmer)?
Or, is there some way to remove the trojan from the PROGISP?
Or maybe it 's not really a trojan?

I downloaded it from another link, 'clean'.
But it only can program AVR MCUs, not BIOS ICs.
I guess with USBAsp I cannot program it, I 'll have to wait for the programmer I have ordered.

False virus detection is very common.

Progisp is mostly an avr flash tool,  but it can do 93c series and 24c  series  memory chip


Some talks / threads to program it with an arduino

You have very cheap ch340 ch341 based   programmers under 5 buck ??

No I haven 't such a programmer, but I have ordered a 'USB Programmer CH341A Series Burner Chip 24 EEPROM BIOS Writer 25 SPI Flash (https://www.ebay.com/itm/USB-Programmer-CH341A-Series-Burner-Chip-24-EEPROM-BIOS-Writer-25-SPI-Flash-NEW/191674211030?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m2749.l2649)' (this is it 's description).

Really? Some shitty antivirus detecting something while the rest report it fine.
