    VLC Media Player flagged as malware as I launched it today. Didn't happen last week. :-/

    NOTE: I don't normally post false positives here, I usually send them to support. Just thought I'd share this one since it's a well-known, popular freeware. :)

    Can't see any point in posting FP (popular freeware or not), you only can expect the answer it'll inevitably bring from Prevx, as always.
    Why not co-operate with their recommendations? : https://www.wilderssecurity.com/showpost.php?p=1485337&postcount=1

    Although I am using WSA beta I am getting no FP for VLC. I suggest to lower heuristics.

    Both Dermot7 & pegas are correct! As per policy this thread is closed!

    This "FP" was due to maximum heuristics - you may want to lower them (Community.OuterEdge is correct as it is a new version of VLC).
