PDFCreator infected with win32:pup-gen


#1

Just installed 3.4.0. During the process Avast showed that isop.exe was infected with win32:pup-gen.
It went to the virus chest. PDF creator appears to have successfully installed.
Saved a screen shot of more detailed info from Avast, but nowhere to attach it here.

Hi @Thefaroah,

You can now attach the screenshot.
The file provides an advertisement (it might actually advertise Avast.. :thinking: ) and it's not a malware. We gladly take a look at this.
Kindly forward the file to Avast as well.

You can get PDFCreator Business if you wish to avoid the advertisement.

I will report as false positive.
