This virus was flagged numerous times today on my computer.

I have a new problem with  Win32:Evo-gen [Susp] - false positive on 2 files :
On scan: NO THREAT FOUND
On acces: Detected
because Win32:Evo-gen [Susp]  (suspicious) is an on access only detection

Chief Wiggum: Uh, no, you got the wrong number. This is 9-1…2.

Avast reported Win32:Evo-gen [susp] and blocked download/execution of the Western Digital MyCloud installer, downloaded from WD:
 http://support.wd.com/product/download.asp?groupid=904&sid=207&lang=en

 I am unable to use my device.

I have also submitted Ticket Ref # : [[061514-8589471]] to Western Digital.

Is this a false positive, or an actual infection?

I have also attempted to submit a ticket with the file attached, but after unsuccessful several tries I gave up.

Thanks,
Frank
