Install 5.0 Beta trigger anti virus


Recommended Posts

Posted · Install 5.0 Beta trigger anti virus

This happens a lot to lots of software packages.  Antivirus software thinks it has a virus (even though it doesn't).  By enough enough people have installed it that I think you are safe.


Also "HEUR" makes me think it is a heuristic algorithm and not a fingerprint that flagged this.  The are algorithms that look for certain pieces of code (ah - here it writes to another file.  A little suspicious) and if there are enough red flags it decides it is malware.


Even the fingerprint method fails sometimes.  Well, a lot.  And gives you false positives.
