Cannot scan DMG files: Error 42147 DMG Archive is corrupted
« on: September 13, 2016, 01:32:19 PM »
Hi,

I've been downloading a couple of trial versions of PDF editors, and I'm finding that Avast fails to scan either of them with the error "Error 42147 DMG Archive is corrupted".

I can open the DMG archives without problems in Finder, and when they've opened I can get Avast to scan the contents fine.

Seems likely to be a bug in Avast to me - anyone know any more or how to fix this?

Despite thinking I was trialing two independent software packages, it seems they are rebranded versions of exactly the same app (they just have custom skinning, add custom watermarks in the trial version, etc.).  So this might be a problem specific to this software, though it is likely a bug regardless.

OS X 10.10.5
Avast 11.17 (46792)
Virus definition version: 16091200

Hi,
possibly a bug in our DMG unpacker . We will have a look at it, thanks for reporting.
