Title: Avast is flagging Apple/AssetCache/Data/Assetinfo.db info as Ransomware?
Post by: JLSeagull on October 12, 2019, 05:14:02 PM
Hi,

Since the most recent Avast update, on OS startup, Avast Pro for Mac is flagging Apple/AssetCache/Data/Assetinfo.db info as a Ransomware threat?... I have not yet updated to the new Catalina Mac OS.

???

Thanks.

I have not seen this but does sound like a false positive.
