False Positive on latest Chromium Nightly?
« on: February 11, 2014, 06:23:21 PM »
Avast just clamped down on the latest Chromium nightly build (attached).   That can't be right, can it?

I'm assuming you mean to visit that website?

Are you downloading a file? If so please include a broken (hxxp:xxx.cdnjwcn.c0m) link so I can check the file

Hello, I used to use google chromium on my other computer ... I always went to http://www.chromium.org/getting-involved/download-chromium to get google chromium. The avast detection of that site it shows in the image you posted might be a correct detection.  :)

Edit: I just noticed the not-so-easy steps link on the chromium.org site.. Yep it looks like an Avast False Positive

Yes, sorry.  I was downloading the zipped archive of the latest Chromium build from here:

hxxps://commondatastorage.googleapis.c0m/chromium-browser-snapshots/index.html?path=Win/250455/

I'm not home at the moment--can't remember if it was the 250455 build...sometimes they update several times a day...

Another attempt to download the latest .zip today, but still being flagged by Avast:

hxxp://commondatastorage.googleapis.c0m/chromium-browser-continuous/Win_x64/250634/chrome-win32.zip

A definition update this morning seems to have taken care of the problem.  (Unless something changed in chrome.exe...)
