    I am looking forward to using this. Anybody else here download this from the GPG4Win main site? Comodo is popping an AV warning flag:

    TrojWare.Win32.Kryptik.AGM@284730160

    I down'd it to a sandbox so I am not worried. I figure its likely a false warning as the GPG guys are really high on my trusted list. I am going to read around when I get home tonight before releasing it into my system. Thought I would see if anyone else here has run into this. The net is quiet about this AV warning so maybe its my sandbox or something.

    Now GPG creates 4K PGP keys which is great for stronger privacy. Change log pasted below:

    Running great now!!

    GPG 2.2.0 is a relatively new release (a few days ago) for windows. It had been three days since I had updated Comodo. When I updated the AV definitions this file is now being "passed" by Comodo. I am guessing Comodo got reports on this and set the definitions to handle this. I have scanned it several times now without "hits" from any AV product.


    Report: this 2.2.0 version runs SLICK. There are several nice larger 4096 key options for both key variations/iterations. So far this is running very smoothly as I am sending back and forth.

    One other really nice change is PASTE in the password box now. My passwords can be long so typing in notepad where I can view it and then pasting is a nice feature. Also, a pre-made notepad document where I can change a few characters and then paste makes a complex/long password easy to handle.
