Trouble with VirusTotal and Malware Accusations
8 May 2017 03:26 UTC
VirusTotal.com reports non-zero "probably harmless" scores for many of the dependencies of my Windows build process, even though I'm almost certain the sources of those dependencies are not tainted. VirusTotal.com reports that (as of today) Baidu and Bkav virus scanners find "harmful" code in these Zim installers. Other than abandoning all of my tools, I do not know how to move forward with this problem.
Starting with today's release I am no longer signing the installer packages, and while I believe they are free of harmful code, I can't promise that I am correct. You must make your own determination about whether you should use my packages or not.
