Ransom:Win32/Locky in stable build installer?

Post by asm74 » Sat 04 Jun, 2016 17:03

I guess it is a Windows Defender false detect , but could you guys try to download the current stable build from Windows 10?
http://www.farmanager.com/files/Far30b4 ... 160210.msi
I've tried several times on different Windows 10 PCs and it says the file is infected with Ransom:Win32/Locky and removes the downloaded file immediately. What interesting that it is not complaining about both Nightly build (http://www.farmanager.com/nightly/Far30 ... 160603.msi) and Archive (http://www.farmanager.com/files/Far30b4 ... 0160210.7z)
Thanks!
