I know this is similar to a previous report last October about Desktop 14. And here it’s still McAfee doing the virus-reporting. However, the virus-ID is different here, and McAfee’s reaction seems somewhat different; so, I’m going to report this, as I don’t want a bug infecting me…
July 15, I downloaded Desktop version 15.0.266 for Windows (10). AFTER installation, McAfee suddenly reported that it had quarantined this file:
“C:\Program Files (x86)\Keyman\Keyman Desktop\sentry-0.4.9\crashpad-handler.exe”
The virus McAfee reported was:
Then, on July 29, I tried to download version 15.0.267 (probably updating from within the Keyman app?). As soon as I told Windows that yes, Keyman could modify my computer, I got a message from McAfee that it had just caught a “fileless” kind of malware trying to do something and had taken care of the problem. THAT WAS ALL, the install didn’t actually happen:
“We caught something trying to hijack one of your apps. Don’t worry, we took care of it.”
At which point, I clicked on Keyman Configuration, and Windows went through a minute or two of re-“configuring Keyman 15.0.266” for me. And – McAfee came back with the VERY SAME REPORT as before (see above, 2022-07-15) – reporting the same virus.
Any enlightenment will be appreciated!
