Hi, I am a new member of the forum. I have registered just for this message.
I am a user of Gimp for a couple years and was interested in trying these nearly final gimp 2.8. . I have downloaded this gimpvideo-184.108.40.206z from sourceforge, in two occasions with two different computers. Both tell me when I try to uncompress that there is a trojan in the file gimprun.exe. One was with MacAffe and the other with Lavasoft. I know the reputation of Photocomix as a dedicated gimp supporter so I am just puzzled.
Hy Migra thank for the trust
i may assure that there are no trojan or virus or adware the report is a false positive what is bad is that we already advice Mcaffe and Panda about, long ago (from the first portable version of gimp 2.7) without get any reply and even less a fix
personally i use avast (the free version) as always-running-antivirus and about once a week i switch it off to do a complete deep scan with Malwarebite
(it is not good use more then 1 antivirus they often conflict )
Malwarebite is also good , even the free version but fine-tuned for bigots:
it seems very concerned about me visiting sites where may be also "mature content", here i don't mean porn ,but just partial nudity, and in case just block the whole site and mark it as "dangerous"
so i don't use it as "resident" antivirus but just for a weekly scan.
