Re: Win32:Evo-gen [Susp] - false positive

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


I have a similar issue when trying to install Todoist (https://en.todoist.com/windows), a well-known, task mgt app.  Reported to Todoist Support as well.

Anyone else experience this?  Believe it's a false positive but want to confirm prior to overriding at install.

Thanks...
