My Acronis Cyber protection considers add-on Excite Audio Motion MALICIOUS

So, just merrily downloading and installing the freebees with my (full-priced) upgrade to Cubase 13, and the one from PluginBoutique for Excite Audio Motion Harmonic Lite - the .exe for Windows - was quarantined by my Acronis Cyber protection as ‘MaliciousExe’. Just an FYI for y’all.

I ran into a similar concern when Windows interrupted the installation (of Excite Audio Motion Harmonic Lite) because the publisher cannot be verified. I received an e-mail response from Plugin Boutique today confirming that “these files are tested and safe to download.” I uploaded the file to VirusTotal and “3/71 security vendors and no sandboxes flagged this file as malicious.”
So I’m at a loss as to whether I should install it or not. :man_shrugging:

Hi,
regarding the score being so low on VirusTotal, if these scanners are not from popular cyber security companies then it is 99.9% a false alert and your files are safe.
