    When I run the Tor Browser Bundle Prevx flags it as a High Risk Worm. I downloaded it from the official Tor Project website. Is this just a false positive or should I be worried?

    I know the concept of hiding IP addresses (which is what Tor does) is considered as iffy in some quarters, but I recall Tor being recommended on the BBC Click program, so it ought to be OK?

    Thanks

    if from the official site then most probably an FP and nothing to be worried about.
