Norton Antivirus complaining

charlieo posted 4 years ago in General
Hi all,

I tried to install several different versions of HeidiSQL today and received a virus alert from Norton. Attached. Any ideas folks? Threat name is called "sonar.heuristic"

report to Norton as "most probably false positive", including download address that you got heidisql from.
