Heur.AdvML.B detected by Norton in the bigbox dot dll

Heur.AdvML.B  detected by Norton (antivirus/anti-malware) in the bigbox dot dll

LaunchBox/BigBox v11.5

Has anyone run into this? What's up? How could this have gotten by Jason? Norton removed it. It's still running, but I don't exactly know if LaunchBox will run after a re-start.

In the forums, I did a search for  Heur.AdvML.B  and got no hits.

Thanks

It's a false positive. Unfortunately Norton does a very poor job of identifying legitimate viruses instead of false positives. We recommend uninstalling Norton and letting Microsoft's Windows Defender do its job. You will probably need to reinstall LaunchBox over top if Norton removed the BigBox DLL file.

I wouldn't worry about it, because in general, a lot of antivirus programs (including Microsoft's) identify false positives, and IMHO it's their method of persuading the customer into believing that their software is "doing a great job" and should (ultimately) be renewed for another subscription. Otherwise, I'd say if you downloaded launchbox from one of those shady websites out there, it could be a legit virus.
