I use Kaspersky Internet security on my iMac.  I had Bitdefender but it used up a lot of resources in my opinion. Both were good.   Even with MacsOSX  you need security even if you are sending data to a website, smart practice.

I have run complete scans of my computer and had no problems with any software so far. I run a dual platform using Parallels, for those programs that suck on a mac.

No problems  and I don't care what the DOJ says about Kaspersky.  By the way, it is an interesting read about this guy.

Actually I don't blame the Feds for not using a Russian product but it's all based on fear of the unknown. Someone spread the alleged false rumor they had close ties with the Kremlin. If anyone's been following our FISA court we know what that's all about.  Unfortunately I think a lot of politics are involved in this.

Wonder when/if DAVIS™ might have update for the VUE Console?

Unfortunately you are on the wrong thread.   We are speaking about anti-virus software here  UU

Happens all the time with threads.
Start out talking about one thing and end up with something completely different.

I was able to update my usb Envoy, but not the one with the weatherlink IP logger.

I tried the IP address and of course it wouldn't connect.  Now this update works on a PC, so I was able to use my Parallels and Win 10.   

I have about half a brain to remove the loggers from the Console and IP logger (both are IP loggers) attach the USB logger .   I wonder if that is a good idea or not

Thanks for the (original) post informing of the new firmware.

What means this, exactly?
Minor improvements to allow use of new (or alternate)Temp/Hum and Barometer.

Is the Temp/Hum internal (inside) for new consoles? Same for Baro?
I'll probably install it regardless, but I was just curious.

It was you and Bushman that first posted it was being flagged as a virus/malware and Bushman laughing at what AV people were using that turned the topic.

Off topic, but I worked for the public school system,  now that is terrifying

They didn't happen to add the one update I would care about ability to display altimeter did they?  It would be nice to be able to ditch the Vue console hooked to data logger because it displays and sends correct altimeter to website. Something the Vp2 console can't do.

...which is how my VP2 system is now configured...and...why I wondered if DAVIS™ might've also had a concurrent update for the VUE console.

The only download files being flagged with a virus is the three (3) most recent FW3.80 versions released February 21, 2018, none of the other downloads prior to this show any issues. The infection being flagged is  Trojan:Win32/Azden.A!cl and several variants and limited specifically to the 3 Feb 21 released updates.

This is being flagged with Win7 & Win8.1 running MSE or WD

@ Mattk
the virus checker are sensitive
one small change in the code can trigger a false positive
the prior version might have been very close to triggering a false positive...just 1 code change could have made it trigger it

Sooooo, is there consensus on the file status?  Has Davis been contacted and/or responded?

Malwarebytes and Windows defender both report the VP2_Wireless_3_80.exe file as being clean.

Now THIS is interesting...  I DL'ed it into a "containment area" since the last time it was kicked out with virus warnings, and now - POOF! _ no problems going past my virus scanners and malware controls.  But uploading the virus file to a scan engine  shows mostly clean, except for some obscure scanners.  https://www.virustotal.com/#/file/0015e3d3e0833a3c4f76b180f77b81dc4b3f61748cd65720dabd9b736c83445c/detection

I think Davis changed the file but am too lazy to check hashes etc.
