Hi all, Norton answered that they corrected runemacs.exe, so i submitted the 6 other files that had the same problem, etags.exe emacsclient.exe addpm.exe ctags.exe ebrowse.exe emacsclientw.exe, now i just have to track the ones that got removed rather than quarantined...

Hi Noam, thanks for the link, i used it to upload some of the emacs programs, reporting them as being falsely anti-virus detected.  I also submitted some of the exe's to virustotal.com, as mentioned in some other Norton community message, and none of the emacs exe's triggered any other anti-virus detections.


It's still a hassle, though, since, while many of the emacs programs are Quarantined by the Norton anti-virus (and can be easily restored), some others are Removed, for which there's no undo operation (all with the falsely detected WS.Reputation.1 message).


thanks,

/jeff

According to https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__community.norton.com_en_forums_clarification-2Dwsreputation1-2Ddetection&d=DwIFaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=yx7WeBO4vNFR2eleLG4z-w&m=o9Wkgj_Y9o3uwCY0WRrKyP4cX03_nVur3WsvHwtHGfY&s=qZ0lBbq4-JjwBbDalE5G8WHRkRB8NKGNShuCa4iCQ44&e=,
this warning doesn't represent a virus finding specifically:

    WS.Reputation.1 is a detection for files that have a low
    reputation score based on analyzing data from Symantec’s community
    of users and therefore are likely to be security risks.[...]

    The reputation-based system uses "the wisdom of crowds"[...]
