Evernote being blocked
« on: February 22, 2017, 04:19:05 AM »
Suddenly today on my MacBook pro OS X 10.11.6 Avast is quarantining Evernote, shutting it down, and moving the whole app into the "chest." When I try to open Evernote again, it migrates all the notes from a previous version of Evernote on my machine, opens, then gets quarantined again. This is a potentially catastrophic problem because if Evernote syncs that old data with my devices EVERY note I have entered on my devices since I installed the new version of Evernote (about two weeks ago) will potentially  be deleted. I must say this is a blunt way to quarantine malware (if it's even malware) and poses major risks to data. Something needs to be done about this asap
