Bitdefender Total Security is flagging LibreOffice as malware when you try to download it.
Comment 1 Julien Nabet 2013-11-03 19:53:11 UTC
Several questions:
- Which LO version did you try to download?
- From which website did you try to download LO?
Comment 2 jmmansir 2013-11-04 00:01:02 UTC
The version is 4.1.3, and I tried to download from libreoffice.org site.

jmmansir: thank you for your feedback

Please don't answer directly from your emailer but by using this link:

Michael: I would say false positive since we already encountered this kind of problem, but would like your opinion.
Comment 4 Michael Meeks 2013-11-04 09:36:39 UTC
Please report it as a false-positive to your anti-virus vendor; the number of such false positives you get is a pretty straight metric of the quality of the heuristics in your AV product I'm afraid. AV vendors tend to pile up hacks to work around these false-positives, I guess they need another one :-) The binaries are signed so ...

Not our bug => closing.
