I purchased the King theme and downloaded from the provided link on Themeforest. Windows Defender immediately quarantines the file after download and flags for Trojan:Win32/Spursint.F!cl.
I wrote to the Author through their Support page but there’s no response for over two days now. The Support site is just a basic form, with no ticket number provided.
Should ask for refund?
If you’d like to move forward with the theme immediately, you can safely disable Windows Defender and download the theme. Don’t open it – instead, head over to virustotal.com and upload the zip file. They will scan it against all the top antiviruses and you can determine if it’s a false positive or not. if it is infected, delete the zip file and send the virustotal results to envato support by opening a Help ticket .
It’s probably false warning by Windows Defender. You can ignore it.
Thanks. I had the same thought but wanted validation before taking any risk. I hope Envato scans files before allowing them on their platform.
Yes, Envato not only scans but also only quality items get approve.
