Secuirty Risk Found in the Installer version 5.5

Post by Mayank1089 » Fri Sep 29, 2017 5:00 am

Hi,

As soon as I download the latest installer the software is getting quarantined as the antivirus on my systems as the system detects Security risks with the Installer.

Please provide resolution.

What type of security risk does your antivirus detect the installer as?

Version 5.564 was released just a few days ago, so maybe it is classified as dangerous because it’s new and does not have many downloads yet?

We checked the installer with VirusTotal and 63 out of 64 antivirus tools classified it as safe (the “Jiangmin” antivirus makes a false detection): https://www.virustotal.com/en/file/bf6c ... 506607436/

We have also made a thorough offline virus check of the build machine, but no threat was detected.
Best regards,

We have Symantec Antivirus which still quarantines the installer. But I could successfully install an older release.

Thanks :)
