Re: Programs made using NSIS still being detected as possible false

I know the consumer submission gets an immediate reply but I am unfamiliar with what happens with corporate. I have stirred up 2 lab techs hopefully 1 is online to answer this.

This is not just one file that needs to be white listed, every program that use nsis installer is flagged positive.

I was simply responding to bgartama who seems to be staff. For moderators you guys do a great job by keeping it neat.

I would recommend looking over the response from which can be found here:

As he states in his response, Every file we do not know is "suspicious" until it proves it is good. Without samples I cannot not submit anything to the Antimalware Team for review. Since on version 7.4.2.2 I was not able to reproduce the issue with the nsis installer, I believe that this might be an issue with the engine itself. At this point I would recommend that you file service requests with the files that need to be reviewed.

Well some programs are whitelisted now but not every one of them. Anyways I think we have to submit each and every file that use NSIS for inspection

What the owners of NSIS need to do is apply for their software to be cleared and then maybe everything else using it would automatically be cleared as a result.

It would appear that the software may have changed, hence they would need to re-apply.
