I would recommend emailing Norton and AVG and saying lower their threshold. These false positives can come with stable releases as well and they aren't our fault. These programs set these stupid system thresholds to determine if something is malicious and then we get blamed. There are several bug reports on FDO (our bug tracker) related to this over the last few months and all have been closed as INVALID.

If enough people email Norton saying "hey we pay for this stuff and yet we get these false positives" maybe they'll do something to make their algorithm a bit smarter.

All the best,

Hi :)
Not had a problem with it with AVG anti-virus.

Errr, you know that 4.1.2 is the most "bleeding edge" version in the "cutting edge" branch, right?  
If you want stability and predictability then it's probably better to
a)  wait until the 4.1.4 is fully released in a few months time or
b)  go for the 4.0.5 instead
I go for option b.

Subject: [libreoffice-users] False Positive?
I recently upgraded to LibreOffice 4.1.2. After installation, my Norton 360
advised that they had found and removed a bad thing, /Suspicious.Cloud.7.F/
from the installation folder of LibreOffice. I assume this is a false
positive. Has anyone else experienced this?
