Windows 10 with SmartScreen filter on is blocking Improbable.Launcher.Win.msi on download from the Chrome browser (set to default).

The file at https://console.improbable.io/launcher/download/latest/win is currently (again?) being detected by Windows Defender as a virus (specifically Trojan:Win32/Spursint.F!cl). While i do not mind working around the issue, it might help the security conscious among us to know for certain that this file has not been compromised. We can of course explicitly exclude the download directory from the virus check but doing so leaves us exposed if at some point in the future it is legitimately compromised.

I very much understand the frustration of being flagged as a false positive! We deliver apps too. :slight_smile:

Hey @milieu!

Sorry you’re having trouble with Windows Defender. It’s a known bug that seems to have cropped up again recently. We’re looking into it!

Of course @rebecca! Didn’t want it to be a roadblock for anyone else.
