Hi, I juste download the 5.12.0 update of Calibre with the link from the logiciel and my antivirus (Avira) send my a notification saying that he put the file TR/Crypt.XPACK.Gen in quarantine because he recongnize it as a trojan horse. I don't understand, Calibre is a fantastic tool but I trust my antivirus so what is the TR/Crypt.XPACK.Gen file ?

TR/Crypt. XPACK. Gen is the generic name for threats detected by Avira and categorized as unknown Trojans
So Avira cannot identify a known threat but it thinks there is one.
Funnily enough Microsoft Defender doesn't find any issue with Calibre V5.12 and I would rather trust that.
