False Positive on quill-webcomponents.exe


Recommended Posts


We've got a false positive on a self extracting zip file that is part of our software's VSTO addin that enables multiple copies of the host office application to not be spawned. 

Link to as the compression is 90mb and file size limit is 87.89mb - https://storage.googleapis.com/quill-downloads-public-test/desktop-cef/quill-webcomponents.exe

Log files attached. 

If you need any further info please let me know .

Hi Apologies for that. That was just a temporary VM (which has since been destroyed) to provide you with Log files for evidence of the false positive. We have experienced this on some of our users machines but its obviously quite difficult to grab the log file from the clients machine. 

If you need any further information please let me know.

Had a look at this and the protection is set to its defaults. But still flagging the false positive. Please advise. 

Whether or not the settings look default, Did you click restore defaults or not please?

There is an issue where it "looks" right but is not.
