Norton reported a trojan today when running gpodder. Downloaded the latest file, and Norton reported it before trying to install. The previous version I have 3.8.1 is clean.

gPodder 3.8.5 got quaranteed a few hours after I installed it, not when I ran it. I reinstalled 3.8.0 with no issues so far

This is a duplicate of bug 2051, and is probably a false positive with Norton. Please scan the affected files with a different virus scanner.
