Hi all,

I use the WPvivid plugin to make backups of my Wordpress website. It always worked fine, till now. Making the backup with the plugin still works fine, but when i try to download it to my hard drive, I get a malware threat, and the download is aborted (error: Other: Malware-gen[Trj]). It seems that WPvivid Backup plugin just compresses the website data and does not change them. So, WPvivid seems not to be the problem.

I checked some other websites I maintain, and all these websites have the same issue. So it has nothing to do with some changed content of the website.

Any idea?

Thanks!

Edwin
