    I've downloaded Shadow Defender from the official web site. During the installation Avira Free 8 ( heuristics medium ) detected a trojan: TR/Crypt.XPACK.Gen

    It's obviously a false positive but...has anybody else experienced this?

    Thank you.

    I already have Shadow Defender installed, and Avira 9 Suite detected it on 3-22-09 on my High scan as well. Sent it in as FP and the next day it was fixed here. uninsOO1dat

    I have, and rather than wait for them to fix it, just add all SD executables to the Avira 'Exceptions'.

    Hmm, I fixed that detection some time ago. Please send the file to heuristik2@avira.com so I can have a look again.
