Malware warning?

Tue Jul 25, 2017 10:49 am

Attempted to install the new version and my antivirus is convinced that it's malware. Has the server been compromised or is my antivirus being overly vigilant?

I frequently get a "Low Reputation" warning from my anti-virus program when I install new releases like this, so you might want to check and see what the warning is.

For example, my Avast scanning may give a "FileRepMalware" warning, which just means the file reputation is low (meaning it is a fairly new file). Usually after a few days, it seems they have seen enough downloads of the file and the warning goes away.

So you're most likely just seeing the same "low reputation" warning

Ya I had to turn Avast off for 10 minutes until I got 4.0 installed. It is fine as far as Malware goes.
