#1163 False Detect by Norton


Just downloaded the latest version of PasswordSafe from site, Feb 8, 2014. Didn't use mirror site.

I run Norton Internet Security. It grabbed file and said it had detected Suspicious.Cloud.7.ep Norton deleted file.

Is Norton keying in on some new code and falsely detecting error or is it possible the download has been altered.

Longtime user and promoter of Password Safe and just thought I would update today. Thanks.

    Quick update. Downloaded pwsafe-3.32.exe and Norton reported it is safe.

    Just tried again and Norton deletes it pronto. Same error. Norton really doesn't like something about file. As per previous post 3.32 makes Norton happy. I'll try again tomorrow or I will stay with 3.32. Thanks for looking into this.
