Norton Security blocks latest BTSync


Recommended Posts

Tried to convince my neighbor to install sync to send me a big file.

But he claimed his AV blocked it as Unsafe, "WS.Reputation.1".

So no transfer took place :-p

He's a legal customer and get definition updates from Norton/symantec and such.

Same scenario as here

though that was the Bittorrent client, but of course i realize its common code being detected.

If your neighbor downloaded Sync from an official source (i.e., then this will be what's known as a "false positive".

Please see the Virus Total scan for BTSync_x64.exe ( here. As you can see Symantec (Norton) finds the file clean. The same is true of the 32-bit version (BTSync.exe)


Yes, of course it is, but can't you affect symantec/norton to whitelist your product?
