Libre Office Issue

I tried to install the portable (3.3.2) version on my key and Norton quarantined SBASE. I downloaded the full version to install on the main machine and Norton did non let out a peap. Can someone explain what is going on?

false positive

It's a false positive that was discovered yesterday. I have a link to the virustotal report in the comments of the release announcement linked on the frontpage. Please report it to norton so they can fix their bug.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

False Positive

It is interesting that this did not cause problem with the regular version.

How do I report it to Norton

They seem to have completely dropping any such bug reporting options.
