Hi,

 I think you guys’ve heard about Riseup vpn. It’s an opensource free vpn with U/L data download limit. When I browsed the internet everyone said it was a malware free software. But Kaspersky free has blocked the download (it flagged as a Trojan). Can anyone confirm if it’s a false positive or not ?

I don’t think I can. I’m using Kaspersky free. But according to your scan result it is indeed malicious right ?

I had my friend check this with Norton premium. But it showed clean.

Hello,

i see that the problem is solved, but i have another question, that is somehow related to the topic. Is there a possibility to prevent such false detection?

 

Looking forward to your response : )

@antiTrojan Please see this K-Lab article https://support.kaspersky.com/1870
In some cases some suspicious objects are behaving like a virus but are in fact not malicious. ...
