Update.exe recognized as malware: HEUR/QVM03.0.Malware.Gen


360 Total Security throws this when launching Atom, I’ve set it to ignore for now.


It has been reported a couple of times now that Atom is being flagged as malware on Windows 10.
Can you confirm your OS?

See this previous topic:

This issue has been opened for it (specifically for Win10 at the moment):

Edit: I took the liberty to update your post’s title as well, in order to make it clearer. Hope you don’t mind.


Even if this isn’t Windows 10, I don’t think we need n posts with minuscule variations on the theme. I consider this a duplicate of the topic @batjko linked. Please continue the discussion there.

We like to unify similar discussions under one topic so that people don’t have to read a bunch of different threads to get the whole story. Closing this topic as duplicate.
