Virus Detected

I received a warning from AVG Free that it detected a virus in the zipped package of build 2.67b-r58186-win32-vc11.zip during extraction. AVG found "Win32/Heri" in Blender.exe and BlenderPlayer.exe files.

I'm almost certain this has to be a false positive, but I felt someone should at least be aware of it. (I have a screen shot of the exact message, but am unable to figure out how to upload to this message / forum.)[/img]

Since that is not an official build of Blender, I suggest you mention it in the comments on graphicall or where ever you got that build.

I got the 'build' from this website...
http://www.blender.org/dl/http://ftp.nl ... dows32.zip

I dunno how to determine if any downloads from the Blender.org website are official, or... whatever it is you're saying it is.

Well, that does not match the filename '2.67b-r58186-win32-vc11.zip' you posted in your original message... So I assumed it was a custom build found at some other site.

Results from googling 'Win32/Heri' and 'AVG' would appear to show that they are having many cases of false positives with that particular case.
