For info to Norton Security Users,
Using QGIS 2.18.1 on Windows 7 sp1 64 bits.
Norton deleted twice, without warning, qgis-bin.exe + many .py files on
my computer + modified many registry entries.
Message was "WS.Reputation.1", linked to the so-called SONAR function of
This is how it works : "WS.Reputation.1 is a detection for files that
have a low reputation score based on analyzing data from Symantec’s
community of users and therefore are likely to be security risks."
The Norton (french-speaking) Assistance confirmed me it is a false
positive. I asked them to put QGIS on the White List.
NB: this is not the first time it happens for QGIS, see:
Afterwards, I submitted also a demand for whitelisting, as a Norton
user, on the Norton website
qgis-bin.exe can be uploaded for testing.
I hope this will prevent any other disturbing false positive on Norton
products. Any suggestion?
