Avast apm virus


#1

Hey guys i am running latest version of atom on my PC windows 10.
I am Seti and Monokai Seti theme installed.

Packages installed :
atom beatify
atom-clock
auto-detect-indentation
color-picker
autocomplete-python(installed kite)
kite
emmet

When i booted my PC Avast popped up saying it stopped a virus from attacking:
i am attaching screenshot of virus details.
kite also came as startup process which i disabled.
Capture

Should i be scared or just falseware ?

I’m skeptical. If you want to be completely safe, feel free to delete the AppData\Local\atom folder and reinstall Atom. All of your packages and info are stored in C:\Users\Fusionist\.atom.
