Download Virus

Hi I tried to download the latest Windows 64bit Yafaray file yesterday, but my virus checkers told me there is a trojan virus in the file so I can't download it. Can I get a clean copy from someone please? Thanks

Please,will you enter here the link you used to download and what antivirus you are using?

In my builds I could see some antivirus give warnings, but only a few so I believe it's a false positive.

I uploaded my beta3 64bit build to MetaScan online and these are the results:
https://www.metascan-online.com/en/scanresult/file/a7f747cd25d54a2f9a5359dd36605716/extracted

You can see that 2 antivirus engines gave a positive while 41 engines did nod detect anything strange. That's why I believe it's a false positive, but of course the final decision is yours.

I found the point in the code causing this false positive and a workaround. I hope to have it solved in the upcoming beta4.

Hello,

No need to change the source code. I reported to Avast this problem with the Windows 32bit / 64bit builds being detected as false positives and now with the latest Avast program version and virus definitions version it does not detect any threats in the YafaRay v0.1.99-beta3 Windows builds.

Please when you do the upgrade in Avast make sure you have the very latest program and virus definitions at least as of May 28 2015. Then try again to download/decompress v0.1.99-beta3. Let us know if you still have issues with it.
