Virus alert
« on: August 11, 2014, 04:28:08 AM »
Hello,
I downloaded the latest version (from the 'wizard') and immediately symantec quarantined the gxo2.exe file as having a virus.

Did anyone else encounter such an issue?
Any  suggestions as to how I should proceed?

Thanks

Hi Haim,

My suggestion would be to proceed with gxo2.exe and not to proceed with Symantec. Just have it disabled for as long as you're toying around with OxygenBasic that's still a W.I.P.

This is a false alarm. Many AV packages are triggered off by new native code compilers trying to be on the safe side. This happens until they have collected a solid base of well behaved submissions on the net, or alternatively until the dev team pays off the AV gang with (un)fair sums of money for putting the compiler on their exclusion lists.

I guess none of us has changed his name for Zuckerberg yet, has he? ;)

Thanks for the info Aurel,

Thank you for your responses.
