Illustrator 2024, Malware or not?

After a recent scan of my Windows 11 PC, my antivirus (Avast) indicated the following as malware:

 

C:users\john\AppData\Roaming\Adobe Illustrator 28 Settings\en_US\x64\New Document Profiles\web.ai

C:program Files\Adobe\Adobe Illustrator 2024\Support Files\Required\New Document Profiles\en_US\web.ai

 

Can anyone confirm if this is malware or a false positive?


Thanks!

Hi @johnh11251311 

unfortunately, I can't tell you whether your new document templates are infected or not.

 

But please read the parallel thread on the same topic. Maybe that will help you a little.

Likely a false positive, but if you are concerned, Avast has the ability for you to send a file to them for analysis, and if they determine the file is indeed a false postive, they will adjust their definitions accordingly.
