Windows Defender Sees Virus

Post by edlipson » Sun Jun 26, 2016 6:42 pm

I just downloaded the latest patch and it was flagged as a Trojan. Not sure why, I used the standard update module to fetch the updates.

Anyone else see this?

Ed, the installer files are clean. For some reason Windows Defender flags some installers that use InnoSetup (the same technology we use for our installer) as this particular trojan. But this is a false-positive and I am trying to contact Microsoft in order to clear up this issue.

You can always test the file with https://www.virustotal.com to see that everything is OK with it. You can also manually update to the latest version, using the link from our MyInfo 6.35 email.
