Bug: Kaspersky trojan false positive

Last updated: 24 October 2009

Various versions of the Kaspersky antivirus software incorrectly flag the EclipseCrossword download as having the trojan "HEUR:Trojan-downloader.win32.generic".  The EclipseCrossword download is safe, however, and not infected with a virus.  Kaspersky has verified this and plans to issue an update.

In the meantime, you can work around this issue by download EclipseCrossword manually at the following location:

Alternately, you can temporarily disable your antivirus software while downloading, or ignore the warning.

Tip: If you have Windows 7, Windows Vista, or Windows XP, another free antimalware option is Microsoft Security Essentials.  Windows 10 and Windows 8 come with Windows Defender built-in, which provides the same level of protection.
