JDK 8u101x64 - FileRepMalware
« on: July 22, 2016, 09:07:11 AM »
I tried download the latest version of java jdk (by Google Chrome) but after download I got a warning from Avast:
"Threat blocked - FileRepMalware".

What's wrong? Is it false positive? Do you have the same message?

Basic info:
Windows 10 Home + all updates
Avast Free Antivirus 12.1.2272
JDK link - http://download.oracle.com/otn-pub/java/jdk/8u101-b13/jdk-8u101-windows-x64.exe

There is nothing wrong and it is not a false positive.

avast just says that the file is not downloaded by many avast users.
avast will not alert anymore when more users have downloaded that file.
