    I downloaded the Woo Ver 3.0.9 build from the repository (enabled Advanced View/Previous Versions -> dropdown list) to my desktop and my antivirus software 360 Total Security (https://www.360totalsecurity.com) warned of a trojan in the file:

    Trojan File: woocommerce.3.0.9.zip
    Risks: Trojan (virus.vbs.starupxls.b)

    https://prnt.sc/fpdcq4

    and so I think you may have a problem!

    I also downloaded ver 3.1.0 and it does not generate the virus software.

    While you might just say “use the newest version” the theme I am using has many woo templates, and I see they need to update 2 of them for your new version which I am certain they will have released an update within the next day (they are superb about this – the Striking MultiFlex theme at ThemeForest – incredibly well supported for 7 yrs now that I have been using them – they pump out updates like clockwork).

    In any case, the virus warning is the issue at hand of which I am notifying you to assess.

    Thank You

    These are usually false positives – the source from .org is completely safe. You can send it to them to review https://www.360totalsecurity.com/help/360-total-security/#collapse-faq-3-2 or most antivirus lets you override their recommendations/quarantine.

    Thank you for replying.

    I will submit to them for analysis. I agree it could be a false positive but given that trojans are a huge issue as we are witnessing via the current situation via Petya ransomware, and it is spreading with fake word and excel documents (the trojan file name has “xls” in it) I felt it worthwhile to bring to your attention immediately.

    I will mark as resolved on the basis of your assurance this is a false positive, and should the analysis come back positive advise in a new thread.
