Flirc Setup - 3.26.5 and Norton AV


Recommended Posts

I did a quick search but didn't see anyone else reporting this (apologies if I missed something) but a fresh download from your website is getting flagged up by Norton AV as a "WS.Reputation.1" threat and deletes the file.  Sounds like a false positive on their part (they state less than 50 people have used this file...), but mentioning it in case there is any benefit to talking to Norton.

Below is a dump of their threat assessment.
