ftp.gnome.org: Firefox and Google Chrome marking all recent source archives as malware
As above, Firefox and Google Chrome are marking all recent source archives as malware and by default stopping downloads.
I started a bug report here for Firefox but as Google Chrome is doing the same there does seem to be a new file in the archive somewhere between version 3.20 and 3.38 that is being detected as malware. Edit - This may not be the case the issue seems to be with ftp.gnome.org.
It's possible/probable that real time antivirus heuristics are doing the same, although only VirusTotal antivirus makes a detection (which is mostly signature based.) Edit - This may not be the case the issue seems to be with ftp.gnome.org.
