  1. last year
    Edited last year by matheusmorison

    I created an apk in the Website 2 Apk program. But when I tried to send to a friend, the android's system doesn't gived permission to send. I've tried to send by e-mail, but the Gmail says "Virus Detected". So I scan the apk by antivirus and didn't found nothing. But when I send the apk to VirusTotal, the Cyren detected AndroidOS/Trojan.UDGQ-4. Well, I need explanation about this.

    This is just a case of false positive, you can report it to certain AV-team to get it whitelisted. Further, we will be releasing a software update asap to overcome this issue.

  3. I also have the same problem
    there is no use in communicating this to Cyren and Trustlook an other.

    You would have to store the APK on your own homepage and give the AV companies a download link.

    A publication with google drive does not work, mailing does not work ... everywhere virus alarm!

    With luck, your APK will be scanned by the AV manufacturers and removed from the list.

    With the next APK you have the same problem again !!!

    I have already massively denounced this and there should be an update.

    Now it is really time for an update !!!

    Publication in the store works but you cannot release or send the app for a private download

    We sincerely apologize and regret the inconvenience caused. We assure you there would be soon an update.

    When you create an APK, you are just including a bunch of files inside a ZIP file. So, when you create a new update, several files are overwritten with the same old files. This is what some antivirus are detecting as a virus. When the new app is replacing (a great percentage of) old files with the same old files, it triggers the alarms. That being said, your app shouldn't be a virus, but a false-positive result. It happened to me once.

    Apps created using v4.0 won't show up any false positive alert.
