just tried to update to 1.10.8, and after .7 had uninstalled Windows Defender told me 10.8 contained a virus and trashed it!
is it a false positive, or has badness happened? :evil: :?:

99% chance it is a false positive, but it is worth checking. There are sites that will accept a URL to a file download, and submit it to multiple antivirus testers, and give you an overall report of the findings.

https://www.virustotal.com is one such site. You can submit the URL for the download ( http://makemkv.com/download/Setup_MakeMKV_v1.10.8.exe in this case) and it will give a report. No problems were found when I ran the test, just before posting this.

Exactly the same thing happened to me - reported as Trojan:Win32/Azden.A!cl, zapped the executable and the shortcuts...

It seems to have been able to remove it OK, bur REALLY bizarrely, when I put the name into the search bar in chrome, I ended up at a CraigsList page ?!?!?? (Different machine otherwise I would've feared something nefarious!)

VirusTotal (et al) think it's clean:

Also passed local Avast & MalwareBytes scans, FWIW.

You might want to report a 'false positive' to your AV provider.

I downgraded to 1.10.7 because of this and haven't had any issues.

If I scan the file via the link, it reports as fine.

If I download the file and then upload it to VirusTotal, it sees:

Code:
eGambit      Unsafe.AI_Score_89%

Did you verify the hash check for the file matches the hash file on the download page?

It should also match the hash generated by virustotal - I just verified that virustotal gave the same SHA256 hash as is published on the MakeMKV download page.

Interestingly, "eGambit" isn't even listed in the results page if you use the "check a URL" option.
