Updated ..... But samba mobile widget is still reported (false positive) FIX PLEASE!!!

Widget? What's the detection? If it is still FakeInst-EY then I would try rebooting your device. Widgets should be scanned during apps scan as well, but you never know.

Fixed: it was the GoBackup backup of the apk so I needed to scan files not just apps!

The following are all being reported as Malware:

Amazon Kindle
Amazon
Tabbed Out
ScoreCenter
Google Currents
GMail
HTC Mobile Sync
redbox
YPMobile

They are of type:
Trojan Detected - Android:FakeInst-EY[Trj]

Thanks.

Edit: I checked for updates manually in Avast! and the problem appears to be resolved.  Those applications are not reporting as malware any longer.

Hi Everyone,

Same was happening here in Brazil, but it seems the 130321-01 update solved the issue just fine!

I just had to reboot my device for it to work!

Thanks everybody!

Hello from the USA,

Pulse
Amazon Kindle
Amazon
Touchpal Contacts
Gmail
Hotels.com

130321-01 is the correct version, do a rescan of apps (and files) to get rid of most of the warnings, the rest will clean themselves as you use the apps.
