x86 MSI installer detected as a malware

Daniel Berteaud

Hi.

Since 0.92.2, a few antivirus programs detects the x86 MSI installer as a malware (Avast, Sophos and AVG see the Other:Malware-gen signature). See https://www.virustotal.com/#/file/665507b85422f25350736b8b47a50931521bc7e2bed059f51714177338617d70/detection for details

The x64 MSI is not affected. This is most likely a false positive, but as the file is quite big, I cannot submit it to Avast as such for example.

Anyway, I think you might be interested in knowing this. Not sure what can be done.


Cheers,

Daniel
