Hi y'all, We're seeing some reports of Avast antivirus software alerting users on Mac of a virus or infection caused by Evernote. This is a false positive, you can read more on the Avast Forum here. Updating Avast to the latest version will help to resolve this issue.
Today I installed the latest update and my local AV discovered the following "EvernoteTray.exe, Graftor.124246 Virus". Can you please let me know if you are aware of this? I updated from within my desktop program on Windows.
Something was wrong with my Evernote and decided to reinstall. Downloaded from the official page at https://evernote.com/download/ and upon dragging the app to the Applications folder, AVG Antivirus gave me a warning (screenshot attached). It doesn't seem right, to have the file from the official site have viruses (if this even is one). Could it be something else in my laptop? AVG itself? Help will be appreciated.
Has anyone else had issues with adware being installed together with the Evernote.exe file??? This is the second time this happens to me, so I'm seriously starting to develop a phobia of updating Evernote. The first time those two malicious files executed themselves was when I accepted an automatic update, and the second time exactly the same thing happened when I tried to reinstall Evernote instead of updating the existing software on my computer. These are the names of the files which install themselves completely silently, which is very frustrating: DisocOunttLuOcator.exereaLdeeal.exeThese two completely highjack your browser, installing all kinds of ads and offering coupons (they also install a couple of browser add-ons). And they gather (and send out) information from your computer, according to what I've read online. I got the installation file from the Evernote website, so it shouldn't contain adware, so if this is intentional - no bueno. Has anyone else had this issue???
