Some virus scanners (especially Norton/Symantec) may give a false positive virus alert when downloading or trying to use Verbatim.
Don’t worry, it’s completely safe – there is nothing harmful in Verbatim. It just sometimes trips an auto-detection rule when an installer contains a file with macros. If you’re still concerned, Verbatim is open source – you can read every line of code in it if you’re so inclined.
Each new release of Verbatim is submitted to antivirus companies for approval, so the alerts usually go away.
In the interim, you’re best off using your antivirus settings to “whitelist” Verbatim. You may need to reinstall Verbatim after doing so.
