Bootstrap Builder triggers AVG malware suspicions - Post ID 273521
What is it about your installation packages, and the software itself that AVG might view as suspicious? Is a review of your package construction or package components needed to alleviate this? Can anyone at CoffeeCup provide any insight into what parts of your software and installation might be triggering the AVG warnings?
I don't know of any reason why I personally should be wary of CoffeeCup and its products, but there are increasing numbers of stories in the news about software included with or installed by programs, from companies with the best intentions. However some of the included/installed components may have serious security flaws unknown to their developers, that create a potential threat vector for malware or intrusion.
I just want to ensure that CoffeeCup does NOT get tripped up by something it could avoid.
Sounds like you are getting a false positive from virus program. I recommend you contact their support and submit a report to them and they will add that to their whitelist database. I have done that already here so the more people that do it, the faster they will include it.
On a side note, this is why I still refuse to install those apps. They cause more damage than they are supposed to prevent.
Scott's answer appeared while I was typing this, but having obtained the report, I thought it might be of comfort to DrTechnical.
Have something to add? We’d love to hear it!
