Problem with android:fakeapp-NQ[PUP]
« on: July 13, 2017, 02:01:58 PM »
Hello, I just uploaded a new application to view our website from mobile and we notice that your antivirus detects on this Android application: fakeapp-NQ [PUP].

The problem is that there is no virus or malware on it, besides I scanned with your antivirus the application before compilation in .apk, is there is nothing to report. Once the .apk is built, Avast always detects this: Android: fakeapp-NQ [PUP].

We wish to have explanations!

Thank you

The developer of https://www.chamanzone.com

Report it to avast > https://www.avast.com/false-positive-file-form.php

And if you look at the description avast is showing it doesn't say it is malware but a PUP.
