Cura file flagged by Webroot?

Very strange . I just installed Cura_15.06.03 on my PC and Webroot (antivirus suite) flagged a specific file as a threat.

Malware Group: W32.Mogoogwi.Gen

File: cura_15.06.03\pyqt5.qtcore.pyd

I downloaded the file directly from Ultimakers site so i'm confident its safe. What makes me curious is Webroot is in most cases very good against false positives . So I wonder what could have tripped the flag.

Has anyone else run in to this situation with Cura of any version?

    I sent Webroot a support ticket request last night outlining the details. Hopefully they can assist in how to whitelist a program or update their records so Cura wont be flagged.

    Well, thanks for notifying us. It's insane that webroot flags this as a threat. pyqt5 is the framework that we use for the GUI stuff, which is a widely used package. There is no sane reason why it would give this error.

    "Hello,

    Thank you for submitting your report. We have examined the logs from your system and found that the detected items were the result of a false positive, and are not a threat. We have updated our security definitions to address this.

    You may un-quarantine and restore the file that was quarantined by the Webroot SecureAnywhere software if you have not already done so. To restore the file:

    1. Open on the cog icon next to PC Security.

    2. Click the Quarantine tab.

    3. Click the check box next to the filename, then click Restore.

    Now that this change is in effect, we request that you run another scan of your computer (click "Scan My Computer" on the main overview window). If the same detection occurs, please let us know immediately.

    Thank you,

    Webroot Advanced Malware Removal Team "

    I'm not sure if the updates definitions for everyone but Cura works now.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
