    The report is from a very old file hosted on our old download centre it seems and it's likely a false positive anyway. I'll remove the file from the server anyway just in case but I have no idea how often Symantec updates reports.

    Look at the actual report. It's a download link for some ancient version of PokeGen. Windows Defender doesn't recognize it as a virus, for whatever that's worth.

    Anyone using Norton is an idiot anyway. Who pays for an anti malware system in 2016?

    I mean as in people who would intend to browse here, not just ordinary people.
    Most of us either have nothing or something like Avast, right?

    Doesn't Norton flag a ton of shit as viruses even when they're not?
    I heard it "quarantines" the files for Yandere Simulator, making it unplayable.

    You can press the "Upload a File" button below the text box, and the file is uploaded to FileTrip. It makes it pretty easy to share files.

    I actually don't use Anti Virus software, since it just slows down my pc and it is just a waste of space

    Filetrip used to be integrated with Gbatemp, as in they were one and the same.. Then it was the common sister site. Now it's hard to tell they're related.
