Antivirus false positives

A new year, a new fight with anti-virus software reporting false positives ;)

Educate yourself: https://resonic.at/docs/antivirus

This is just a heads-up that Resonic is 100% virus/spyware/malware/ad-free.

The latest Beta (0.6) was reported by Avira, TrendMicro, as well as some other minor AV scanners, as false positive. All other scanners don't cause problems so far. The EXE, DLL, and MSI files are digitally signed. On top of that a Software Taggant / certificate is added to the EXE which assists new generation AV scanners in avoiding false positive detection. If you're using other AV software that still reports the official Resonic download as malicious, despite the certificates/signatures, you might want to consider changing your AV scanner. There's no excuse left.

For short: Resonic is and always will be clean.

EDIT: For 0.7+ 360 Total Security suddenly reports an infection which is, again, a false positive. Results like "generic trojan", "heuristically dangerous", etc. are basically false positives most of the time anyways, these days. Don't let them make you crazy, it's enough they're doing it to us over here.

Here's a response from Avira labs:

A user interface is like a joke: if you have to explain it, it's not that good.

Re: Antivirus false positives

Early January 2018: "Trojan:Win32/Peals.F!cl" in Windows Defender
NOTE: On January 4, 2018, an incorrect detection for our cloud-based protection for Trojan:Win32/Peals.F!cl was identified and immediately fixed. To ensure that this issue is remediated, you can force a manual update of your Microsoft antimalware software.

If you suspect incorrect detection of your files, check your Windows Defender quarantine and restore the files. Only detections of this malware around this day might be incorrect.
