Virus Warning After Installing Gimp 2.8


Just letting you know that I have been trying to install Gimp 2.8 and after installation I scan the Gimp folder and CIS anti-virus show 5 virus warnings in folder c:\programme files\gimp 2\lib\gimp\2.0\python all files that give a warning are *.pyd.debug

They have been submitted via the CIS quarantine section.

This also happens with Gimp 2.8 portable.

Although I do not know (hence deleted Gimp from system) I think they might be false positives as this is a well known and popular program.

Best regards

Hello zarniwoopz,

Thank you for reporting this. We’ll check it.

Best regards,

Florin, please run the full Windows Installer as it contains like 30 alerts on .tmp executables during install.


This is to inform you that false-positive has been fixed.
You can update to AV database Version <12273> of Comodo Internet Security Version<5.10.228257.2253> and confirm it.

Best regards
