Possible Positive RW in Open-Source Amateur Radio tool CHIRP


Recommended Posts

This morning I received an update notice, while running the currently installed CHIRP which is an open-source tool used to program Amateur radios. Within the pop-up notice was a link to update: http://chirp.danplanet.com/projects/chirp/wiki/Home


The downloader flagged the download as potential threat because it was a .exe ( dot exe ) file.

I scanned the exe download file with AVAST and No Threats were found.


The download was for the Window's OS.


When I attempted to run file chirp-daily-20160215-installer.exe, it was flagged as Ransomware and quarantined.

The quarantine lists it as Malware.Ransom.Agent.Generic.


Would truly appreciate knowing the validity of this quarantine as this tool is used by Many.


Thank you
