Norton won't let me install newest beta

Post by rjclingenpeel » Sun May 17, 2015 4:42 am

When I attempt to download and install the newest beta I'm getting a message from my virus scanner "Norton" and auto deletes. It's says "WS.Reputation.1" I've never had this happen on any prior beta releases; any suggestions on why it's happening now? Here is more detail on the message. I'm currently using beta v7.0 beta 6 - Again this message has never happened before.

Type:
Other
Risk Impact:
High
Systems Affected:
Windows 2000, Windows NT, Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2008, Windows Vista, Windows XP

Behavior
WS.Reputation.1 is a detection for files that have a low reputation score based on analyzing data from Symantec’s community of users and therefore are likely to be security risks. Detections of this type are based on Symantec’s reputation-based security technology. Because this detection is based on a reputation score, it does not represent a specific class of threat like adware or spyware, but instead applies to all threat categories.

The reputation-based system uses "the wisdom of crowds" (Symantec’s tens of millions of end users) connected to cloud-based intelligence to compute a reputation score for an application, and in the process identify malicious software in an entirely new way beyond traditional signatures and behavior-based detection techniques.

Symantec is one of the worst for antivirus... It's obviously a false positive: https://www.virustotal.com/en/file/623f ... 431816808/

Yea I have to agree Norton is not good but I'm kind of committed at the moment. I disabled auto protect and was able to update to the newest beta. Thanks for the response.
