Dear all,

Rime-Weasel v0.15.0.0 Chinese input method is blocked by webroot and cannot even download it, how to solve the problem?

REMOVEd Direct LINK!

details of this Chinese Input Method about blocked by Antivirus program:
https://github.com/rime/weasel/issues/922


Can Webroot check it, and add “Rime-Weasel v0.15.0.0” to the white list after verification?

At this moment, any temporary method to install Rime-Weasel?
I am using Win11

Thanks for any kind of help!

Hello @hhtmp88 

 

It’s best to contact Webroot Support Directly and they will let you know!

I downloaded the file and here is the detection to give to support!

Thanks Daniel for your info!

I noted that the SHA256 and MD5 codes are the same as indicated by the programmer group of Rime-Weasel,

so is it fault-detection?
and the installer file,  weasel-0.15.0.0-installer.exe , is actually clean and no virus?

or Webroot is still under investigation?
but it’s already nearly 4months since your first detection on June 8, 2023!
