McAfee blocks Tor download

Jump to solution

Hi,

McAfee blocks download of the Tor browser. Since Tor is a privacy protecting software, it seems odd that this software is infected with PUP or virus. Anyone else having trouble? Tor is downloadable from www.torproject.com. Is this a false finding from McAfee's side?

Thank you for your replies. I haven't done anything particular, but when I tried to download the file again today, it went through without any problems. So the case solved itself.
