    Hey guys on the latest update my AV software is auto removing malware every time i try to update. Have used the software for months and never had an issue with my AV and the software before. It also does it when downloading from the Website. Moreover its not just a warning it is physically quarantining Trojans.

    Believe there's a post about this elsewhere, where the obfuscation is causing AV's to throw a false positive or something.

    Is it flagging the .exe or the .jar? We'll contact all the problematic antivirus manufacturers you guys list and try to get it cleared up.

    It turns out that it's flagging our installers that are used to update the client. There's also at least 2 antiviruses flagging our standalone jar file. We're working on it.
