Avast Mobile Evo-gen Trojan bug is back again?


Compiled a Project today and get since today the same Virus Error like in this Fred:

Scanned the APK online on virustotal.com with the same result:

Avast-Mobile Android:Evo-gen[Trj]

extension check/

There are no extensions in use or loaded.
A older version of my Project consist the virus check. The only different is the TinyDatabase and a second screen. How can this be?

Very unusal.

Avast was, is, and will be a broken scanner. I think this company has a problem with ai2.
If out of 61 scanners, only one detects a virus, I wouldn't use that scanner.
And that's about it.

Another reason might be to use some permissions that are not wanted in SDK30.

Well, In my Opinion,

Firstly no one should even use Avast, It has already done many bad deeds,

Ref :

Its extensions were even removed from Mozilla, Chrome

Rest is on users selection
