Steps to reproduce
Every time I updated plugins, Bitdefender antivirus disinfected and quarantined Obsidian and my vault.
Bitdefender doesn’t consider the update as a threat
The updated files were quarantined
- Operating system: Windows 10
Is this related to all plugins or to one in particular?
This is most likely a false positive and I can see why Bitfender flags this a possible malware (you are essentially downloading scripts from a website).
It has happened to all plugin updates since two days ago.
I think bitdefender is just concerned with downloading scripts from the the internet. It’s not a wrong concern. I am not sure if they have a way to report false positives or whitelist obsidian.
I had whitelisted Obsidian and my vault, but it kept happening.
I just sent the false positive report to Bitdefender.
False! The latest version available for download by the general public (not insiders), according to VirusTotal, is virus-free. https://www.virustotal.com/gui/file/ffd93faa1d0a7d5b6a7e7844a3c96f69fde829393bcefa924bc90da47fae3aaf/details
