Thank God I have this powerful Antivirus installed in my computer. I just received this notification now saying that a trojan Virus was accessed by Tweetdeck. Bitdefender intercepted it like Ninja!!!
Let’s see how this story goes in the further days to come. Have you experienced the same issue? Let us know in the comments section below.
Tweetdeck’s Analyst commented and gave us details about the “Issue” here is what he Said:
I’m Conrad and I work for TweetDeck. On an initial look at the screenshot, it looks like the anti-virus software may have come up with a false-positive. This is possible, and does happen with various apps, programs and extension files from many reputable companies.
There are a couple of reasons for my suggestion of this:
A) This has never been a problem before, and has not identified by any of our users/anti-virus software.
B) The actual file that it is indicating, is simply a database file. TweetDeck uses this file to store info about Tweetdeck settings preferences and such.
C) In the screenshot you do have a torrent downloading/downloaded. Whether this is open-source or not, I cannot say. However, unless the publisher of those torrents is from a reputable source (a company for example), then there is a possibility that a Virus/malware could have come through a torrent and randomly started infecting files. Again, activity of Torrents and its content, is nothing to do with TweetDeck.
I have provided my email in the above email field and if you wish to contact me, you are more than welcome to. You can also contact me via twitter: @conradoldcorn
Again, I do not believe that there is anything to worry about here. I think if there was a real issue here, we would have a vast quantity of our users reporting this issue.
I hope this clears up any confusion,
