False Positive PUP
« on: August 07, 2019, 01:17:42 PM »
Every time I install this application (which is a legitimate enterprise app which uses Fuse), Avast flags it as a PUP. You can see the alert in the attachment. It looks like it’s flagging Fuse as a PUP which it absolutely is not. Can the definitions please be updated to correct this?

Thank you. I have submitted the .dmg file into the false positive form.

Please keep me posted once the definitions have been updated.
