qbittorrent_4.0.1_x64_setup.exe neutralized by antivirus
« on: November 22, 2017, 06:53:39 pm »
Shortly after downloading the 4.0.1 update, my antivirus neutralized it as a threat. This never happened before with previous versions, including 4.0.0, which I installed the same day. The antivirus software identified a W32/Exploit.gen threat in it.

Does anyone get something like that? Should I wait for a new .exe or ignore the antivirus?

After a forced update bases now, Panda v.18.03.00 not detected W32/Exploit.gen in qbittorrent.exe.

False alarm.

False positive.

Also SmartScreen is acting weird with it.
