False positive with Sophos
#1

Dear Mr. Topala,

Just to be sure. Sophos blocks the download of SIW 2018 v8.1.0227:
20180227 172658 On-access scanner has denied access to location "H:\siw.7z.7z" for user ACME\JohnDoe
20180227 172703 Virus/spyware 'Mal/EncPk-WB' has been detected in "H:\siw.7z.7z\FILE:0000". Cleanup unavailable.
20180227 172703 On-access scanner has denied access to location "H:\siw.7z.7z" for user ACME\JohnDoe
20180227 172707 Access to location "siw.7z.exe" was blocked for user ACME\JohnDoe
20180227 172707 Virus/spyware 'Mal/EncPk-WB' has been detected at siw.7z.exe"

False positive?  So i can notify Sophos of this? I did read your virusscanner entry.

With kind regards,

Jac
