Hi,

AVG antivirus claims 16270 theide.exe (Windows) is infected with Win64:Evo-gen [Susp].

Is this a false positive?

What does theide do that might be misinterpreted as suspicious?

Thanks.

Did you try to verify the file on virustotal.com?

Hello,

Also please compare with recent nightly build. There is a chance that SourceForge somehow alternate our executable.

virustotal.com says no threat.

AVG also reports the nightly build as infected.

I loaded 16270 on a Windows 10 machine and Windows Defender let it run.

I have reported this as a false positive to AVG. I'll let you know their response.

Thanks for your replies.
