Antivirus removing my 2.3 download as a WS.reputation.1
« on: July 31, 2014, 03:09:52 PM »

Anyone having the same problem? Just wanted to check there's nothing wrong with current download from dacsunlimited as far as anyone knows. 

I lost access to my desktop on a restart the other day, and just in case it was virus related I ran an aggressive removal tool which removed BitShares, so it may be blocking subsequent downloads because of that.

Very strange, check if you download from official source:
https://github.com/dacsunlimited/bitsharesx/releases

Here the report from https://www.virustotal.com:

BitSharesX-0.2.3.exe:

Extracted BitSharesX.exe:

Yes I downloaded it from the official source, and just tried your link (to the same source)  and I got the same result.

I guess it must be my anti-virus recognising I already removed it.

(The aggressive scan recommended I remove it the other day, but there was no label/threat associated with it, so maybe it is just the anti-virus recognising I am trying to download the same thing I have previously chosen to remove.)

Sorry, I'm terrible with PC's. Thanks for the help. I'll just tell my anti-virus to restore it. Thanks.

WS.reputation.1 doesn't mean any infection, it just means Symantec doesn't like the developer:

I recommend just to turn it off, it's a garbage...
