[Fixed] FP? Malware https://play.google.com/
« on: March 21, 2017, 05:31:03 AM »
Avast note
Hi everyone,
This was a false positive that was live for around 30 40 min, between 5:15 5:20am and 5:45 6:00am CET (GMT +1). We just disabled it and pushed the fix through streaming updates.

Important: If you still have the problem please restart your PC.

So our computers are getting spammed to annihilation we use gmail for work email and everytime someone uses it, it spams us with Malware notifications detected at https://play.google.com/ :o

EDIT: Also worth noting it's not just Avast Business, my home computers which run Avast Pro and Internet Security are also going crazy, a new notification every 60 seconds.

Thank god it's not just me. Good that you pointed out it was Gmail too, I have too many tabs open to figure out which one was causing Avast to freak out.

Yes, we're seeing the same here.  It's also triggering while users are typing in the URL bar (for autocomplete or search).

Its funny because this detection update prevents android phones from receiving software updates completely.

Yep, getting this here too. Another false alarm, I'm guessing?

I'm getting it often too.  I submitted it as a false positive but I don't have a clue.  I'm guessing it really is false.

I do anything on Chrome and I get this pop-up...even coming to this site.  -sigh- This is the second time this hand happened to me after an update.

I have it in spades. Is this just a false positive or is there something that got into google. It first showed up for me after I received a message of from Avast that it had updated my settings for today. It is going crazy while I try to use Chrome Dev Tools. I am on a Mac Book Pro

I also just started getting the same issue around 30 minutes ago, it was working fine before that.  Do we know what the issue is?

same situation, another Definition false positive , this is the second type of global false positive in a few months , alot of people use GMAIL web client and if it sees play as a issue than there is a big problem
