    avast spotted virus in grubx64.efi :) (kubuntu 21. januar daily)

    Probably falsealarm but still... Interestingly Ubuntu, Xubuntu, Lubuntu daily 64bit images wont trigger alarm.

    Greetings,
    It makes sense to me that Avast would "false positive" a .exe file on a Linux disk. That's the kind of garbage that convinced me to switch to Linux in the first place. Everything on that daily would be channel software so I would have no apprehension using it

    Yes, definitely looks like a false positive to me.

    You should still always be sure to check the md5sum.
