Hi IByte,

Reported file is potentially unsafe application, if you intent to use it further,you can add it to exclusion list.


Reported file is potentially unsafe application
On what grounds? *sigh* You might as well add Windows to the list of unsafe applications, it contains a Remote Assistance feature... I could understand a classification like [url=https://forums.comodo.com/av-false-positivenegative-detection-reporting/cis-malware-naming-rules-for-potentially-dangerous-applicationsriskware-t38506.0.html]Application[/url], but nothing more serious.

(I’ve noticed CAV generates a relatively high number of false positives anyway, especially in the UnclassifiedMalware and Heuristic categories, even with heuristic sensitivity set to low.)
