Virus detected in Kolibri exe v0.14.4

I downloaded and installed Kolibri v0.14.4 and all seemed to be fine and it worked as I expected and I was able to download channels from Koibri studio without any difficulty. On restarting the machine this morning I get this message from McAfee antivirus
Kolibri-viurs-screenshot_crop. There was a Windows update after closing the original Kolibri installation - not sure if that is relevant.

I haven’t seen any other posts on this version of Kolibri so I was wondering whether this is a false alert?

Technical details

  • Kolibri version: v0.14.4
  • Operating system Windows 8.1 64bit
  • Browser Chrome / Firefox

Thanks for your advice

Hi @njturing,

Thanks - we have seen this alert before, and have thoroughly investigated it previously, and could only conclude that it was a false positive as you suggest. We’ve had issues previously with other antivirus software trying to quarantine the Python executable also, but this seems to be different. If you have any more details from the report, we can take a look to see if we can prevent these false positives in future!

Kind Regards,
