Avast Anti/spyware - false positive

Post by scuba » Thu Sep 17, 2015 3:37 pm

Users have reported that downloading newest beta of NewsLeecher throws an avast error saying the file is a trojan: Win32-Banker

We have reported this to Avast and here are their answer:

"We have an information from our virus lab specialists that It was a false positive. The detection has been disabled and It will be fixed in the next virus definition update. We are sorry for the inconvenience."

Therefore it's important to make sure you have downloaded the latest definitions from Avast before installing NewsLeecher.
Downloading versions from www.newsleecher.com/download is always clean and safe.
