Picoscoper6.exe and Trojan.Gen.2

Post by kuisma » Mon May 09, 2016 5:50 am

Every time I install Picoscope 6 for Windows Symantec Endpoint Protection creates an alert:

A high-risk incident was detected on <my Computer name> on 5/9/2016 7:52:25 AM.

Threat Name
Trojan.Gen.2

Threat Type
Virus

Is there really something hidden in Picoscope?

This is likely to be a false positive.

Which version of PicoScope are you installing, and where did you download it from ?
