SAFIR DOWNLOAD INFECTED???

Post by Razorback » 11 Nov 2007, 17:34

Dear SibWing crew,

Today I have bought the Saab 91 Safir. While I was downloading the setup file, my virus scanner (Norman Virus Control) kicked in saying the file is infected. It gave the following warning: W32/Suspicious_U-gen.

Can you please help me out here because I don't dare to install the aircraft at this time.

The file keeps getting quarantined by Norman VC.

Hello,

You are not alone in this trouble :)
This is because we use 7zip archiver ( http://www.7-zip.org/ ) for packing our installation package with hight compression ratio.
But some kind of antivirus (Norman, Sophos) detects 7zip like a virus or something like that.
You can add Safir package name into exclusion list in your antivirus. I promise, our Safir has no viruses or trojans.

Hi Alex,

Thank you for your quick reply.

I have put the map into the exclusion list of my virus scanner and it installed just fine.

Thank you again.
