i just downloaded latest release “shotcut-win64-160901.exe”. After download has finished my Anit-Malware-App “360 Total Security” reported a Trojan after checking the file … and put it into quarantine…
Is there any known issue about trojans/viruses in the latest installer package? Is the package package checked with an antivirus software?
Any help is apreciated
from where? That is an extremely important detail!
Yes, using Windows Defender in Windows 10
I do not normally use 360 Total Security, but I just now installed it, downloaded the Shotcut installer through the
official download location, scanned it, and there are “No threats found.”
Downloaded it again from the official location. NO Malware detected anymore. I m not sure where from i did my first download. I ll try some locations and report if something is wrong.
PS: Did some downloads… and couldnt reproduce the malware alarm. Looks like 360 total security update their database in the meantime.
I just received a Google Search Alert for this suspicious, unofficial installer:
BEWARE OF UNOFFICIAL DOWNLOADS FOR ANY SOFTWARE UNLESS IT IS FROM A TRUSTED SOURCE SUCH AS
FOSSHUB.COM, PORTABLEAPPS.COM, YOUR LINUX DISTRIBUTION, ETC.
There are malicious and/or greedy people who disguise malware as popular free software downloads.
