Tidy.exe -> Trojan ??

5 posts in this topic

Hi, Windows Defender just told me Tidy.exe which is used in SciTe4AutoIt is a trojan horse and needs to be removed.

Below is the info which I copied from W-Defender.

Any else encountered this? Or is this a known issue?

 

(Don't know if this is the right place...)

False positive, unless you got it from somewhere other than Autoitscript.com.


If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

I hereby grant any person the right to use any code I post, that I am the original author of, on the autoitscript.com forums, unless I've specifically stated otherwise in the code or the thread post. If you do use my code all I ask, as a courtesy, is to make note of where you got it from.
