[quote=“mrbickle, post:138, topic:1347”][quote=“Drummel, post:137, topic:1347”]I am not here blindly making any accusations, just so I cover this first!!
On this Ecoining Peercoin Pool site I have a concern I would like to address without anyone making any assumptions first!
Under the “getting started” tab they have a link for a Windows CG miner program. Norton flags it and blocks the site entirely stating there are 7 malicious threats and lists every single one of their miner programs on the Windows CG Miner link.
I know some Virus programs block specific code because of Bot Nets, but I talked to Ben tonight and we tested this with another miner program download and Norton was fine with both the site and the file.
This is just an informative heads up.[/quote]
Hello, thanks for sharing your concerns but:
We are not linking a “Windows cgminer program”, there is a link to the official cgminer page, so if there is any problem you should address them, as it’s nothing pool related. If you check Google, the bitcoin wiki or the cgminer github page, you’ll find the same link.
Also, you shouldn’t use Norton. That is not a good anti-virus nor a good software to have in your personal computer.[/quote]
Thanks for responding mrbickle. I did more poking around (along with shagging Norton for another) and it was truly just a false positive.
Didn’t mean to shake anything up, was just a concern - and thank you again.
