SDRuno 1.22 installer contains a virus?

Postby jyrirauhala » Sat Jan 20, 2018 12:44 pm

I just tried to download the latest version of SDRuno from sdrplay website.
The download is halted immediately By Windows Defender (the integrated virus shield of Windows 10). The system tells simply that there is a virus in the file I am trying to download and the file has been deleted.

Nothing of this kind appeared when I updated my SDRuno to 1.21 some time ago.

How to get around this issue?

We'd like to reassure everyone that www.sdrplay.com and all its content checks out to be virus free.

You can be confident if you disable your virus checker when downloading from SDRplay that no harm will come to your computer.

Initially, I tried installing the SDRuno update from SDRPlay website using the Microsoft Edge browser. All three attempts failed after the virus alert.
After reporting the issue on the community forum I made another attempt, this time with Internet Explorer. To my surprise the Defender found nothing wrong with the update file and everything worked just fine.
