Question about possible false positive?
« on: February 24, 2021, 03:57:57 PM »
Hey everyone! I was wondering if I got a false positive from avast. I've run daily scans automatically every day for the past few months with no issue and then today it claimed that it found MacOS:Agent-OG[trj] within my Xcode.app for XCPreviewAgent.app. To my understanding that is not a trojan but maybe I am missing something? Any help would be much appreciated!
