microsoft defender issue with 4.3.2 installer

Post by misterfantantrico »

microsoft defender smart screen detects the qbittorrent_4.3.2_x64_setup.exe as potentially dangerous and blocks the file.
This does not happen with previous 4.3.1 version.

What has changed in last version installer?

I am using new edge browser with windows 10 pro.

I have this problem too, but with Malwarebytes. And I can't get it to stop, even after adding the program to Allowed, and only after updating last night.

I use Defender (the in-built av) on Windows 10, I have not had any warnings, and using 4.3.2 happily, working great.

I had the same issue on 27 Dec, but today the same setup file is no longer flagged by Defender.
Maybe MS changes something in Defender.
