Avast Driver Updater flagged as PUP


Recommended Posts

Malwarebytes reports what Avast appears to be calling their Driver Updater as a PUP - swdumon.sys containing PUP.Optional.DriverUpdate.  The Avast software looks like a clone of the DriverUpdate reported on other forum pages - 

I thought Avast were reputable - now I'm just confused.  Help welcome.

I scanned the swdumon.sys file with VirusTotal
