[] Chrome flags installer as malware


Recommended Posts

OS: Windows 7 Home Premium SP1

Chrome Version: 46.0.2490.80


If I use the download link at http://ignition.customsforge.com/cfsm/downloads,

Chrome reports an error in the downloads footer: "setup.exe may harm your browsing experience, so Chrome has blocked it."


If I use the download link embedded in the releast post on the customsforge forums (http://customsforge.com/topic/24024-customsforgesongmanager-11-released/), I get the same error - but interestingly a different filename.


"CFSMSetup.exe may harm your browsing experience, so Chrome has blocked it."


I've scanned this with a couple malware/antivirus apps, but neither found anything specific. 


Here is the associated chrome help link:  https://support.google.com/chrome/answer/6261569?p=ib_download_blocked&hl=en&rd=1

Glad to hear it, thanks.  


I can understand your perspective - it's a hassle.  


Given the malware / virus / botnet epidemic, I also consider anything that helps to protect users to be a good thing.  :)  At this point it's just a build tool integration issue - minimizing the overhead for developers.   Then again, I should admit that I'm biased because it is completely automated for me (at work at least).
