Trojan:Win32/Zpevdo.B

Hi there, so after upgrading Go from 1.16.7 to 1.17 (amd64.msi) my Windows Defender (v 1.347.36.0) detects go.exe as Trojan:Win32/Zpevdo.B. Reverting it back and 1.16.7 seems to be ok. Anybody else if having this issue? regards, Peter

Hi Peter,

Please see https://golang.org/doc/faq#virus for details.

If you’ve just installed the Go distribution and the system reports it is infected, that’s certainly a mistake. To be really thorough, you can verify the download by comparing the checksum with those on the downloads page.

Thank you Daniil, the checksum is correct so I guess I have to report it to Microsoft…or wait a few days for a new scan definition where the detection is maybe solved. For now I stick with 1.16.7.
Regards,
Peter
