I said I was not concerned, if you reread my post.
I have no qualms about running the client on my machine whatsoever.
I was simply pointing out the fact that AVG was falsely reporting bitcoin.exe as a trojan, and why this would not be a good thing if we are aiming for bitcoin to be scaled to population-size levels.
I was adding that for people who are reading this thread. At any rate, you should still run in a VM especially new clients. And their isnt shit bitcoin can do about avg false positives except for us to write avg and say "fix that" and send them a copy of bitcoin.
virus scanners do that to legitimate apps all the time, especially internet facing ones. crap norton once took out teh chinese version of windows xp by deleting crucial system files.
> this is one of the largest most famous anti viruses, taking out a version of the worlds most popular desktop OS at the time. It doesnt say crap about bitcoin, no it isnt good news and yeah you should complain to avg.
and FOR EVERYONE ELSE.. if you are unsure, RUN IT IN A VM OR A SANDBOX
and where is my security subforum.
