Still no response from anybody at EN.

Hey, this is a serious issue with potentially harming thousands of users around the world.

Very disappointing. Nobody from EN looking into this and recommending a remedy?

I installed this update, and received no antivirus notification. I use the stock Windows Defender, which seems to be pretty good these days. I'm guessing false positive, but it would be good to hear that from the Evernote folks.

Hi Austin,

thanks for the info.

I can confirm this as I was able to check with Kaspersky and they came to the same conclusion.

False positive !!
