Chrome Portable updates

Current Chrome portable is outdated (has been over week now) so question is is it still supported (updated) or should I switch to other source (which isn't liked by Comodo as much as PortableApps version) to get Chrome portable?

Today

All 4 channels of Chrome Portable are being updated today (uploading now). We had some reconfiguration of the toolchain that was being completed.

I wouldn't trust Comodo's assessment since they release a browser based on Chrome which is nearly always out of date and missing critical security patches but don't alert on their own app.

Chrome SAPE.HEUr.900C0

Updated Chrome Portable today (11/18/15). Norton Security quarantined SAPE.HEUR.900C0 as a High Risk and attributed it to Chrome Portable. I am running Windows 7/SP-1. Chrome Portable no longer runs (I had to use Portable Firefox to create this comment). I see no other reports of this problem in the forums.

False Positive

It's another false positive in Symantec/Norton. Here are the results:
https://www.virustotal.com/en/file/5cf0a1967af3108d5aa46bb452735736f9842...

(Note that ClamAV has a different false positive in the above results and its latest definitions update is alerting on all kinds of products at present. The team has been notified.)

This is a part of Norton's rather notoriously bad heuristics detection which I generally recommend disabling (aka it's not a detection of an actual virus in their database, it's a guess of something that might possibly be bad... and it often guesses wrong). Even Symantec itself labels this as "Risk Level 1: Very Low". In other words, it should just warn you and let you run it, but it just blocks it instead.
https://www.symantec.com/security_response/writeup.jsp?docid=2014-081413...

You can report it to Norton and hope they specifically whitelist it, adjust your settings so that low level threats are ignored or warned, turn off heuristic detection, or switch to another antivirus.

You can report the false positive here:
https://submit.symantec.com/false_positive/

I have reported it as well.

UPDATE: Symantec has confirmed it is a false positive and will be fixed in the next definitions push.

Chrome Portable

Chrome portable itself isn't issue with Comodo even if I download it from [warez site] but Comodo doesn't like [warez site] installer (cause it executes 7za.exe in temp-folder and tries to modify some protected files and it requires admin-access to start), Comodo doesn't "say" anything when I use portableapps Chrome installer/app.

Updated, Illegal Site

All four channels have been updated using the updated NSIS package (for improved process detection) and Installer (for better downloads of live installs) so you should be good to go.

Please note that we don't permit discussions of illegal sites on PortableApps.com. Especially ones that have stolen our code, graphics and trademarks.
