    Hey BHW


    I started up a GSA campaign for the first time in a while and my anti virus instantly blocked three attempts of a virus.


    I'm using AVG free, has anybody else had problems like this?

    I've had Windows Defender block the application entirely from opening. I just allowed it and everything works fine.

    I don't think your GSA has viruses. It's most likely a false positive by your AVG.

    You can't get a virus from running SER since SER doesn't use a browser or execute any code. Your virus protector doesn't know that so that's why you see it popping up when hitting certain URL's.

    No need to worry though.
