This is what my Norton told me a few minutes ago...

I think 'Insight Network Threat' means someone has said they think it is a virus. False detections are not uncommon from virus scanners unfortunately, below is the virustotal view of the file.

It says right on my report that the detected threat name is WS.Reputation.1, not what someone may have falsely reported. Looking at your virustotal file, I see no check by Norton/Symantec. Do you also consider the viral detection by F-secure false?

Thanks,
David

Yes, I do. The F-Secure 'detection' only says that the file is an application bundle rather than a single application, which is correct - it has an installer and it has REW itself. From the F-Secure website:

Gen:Variant.Application.Bundler identifies software that is distributed bundled together with other components or programs.

TECHNICAL DETAILS
An application bundle is a collection of software that is distributed as a single package. Bundling applications together is a popular technique used by software vendors to attract customers, who may be interested in only one of the programs in the package but are willing to pay for or accept the entire bundle for the perceived value of having all the included software.

The software included in a bundle is up to the discretion of the software vendor: it can be a program with a separate installer or uninstaller; an operating system and a basic suite of programs; a game and related components; and so on. In more ambiguous cases, the bundled applications may be potentially unwanted applications (PUAs) or Unwanted Applications (UA).​

The virustotal result says F-Secure recognise this as an application bundle (which it is), not that it is a virus, and 63 other virus scanners say the file is clean.

The 'WS.Reputation.1' terminology is Norton's description of something that has been flagged as suspect (per the details in 'Threat Type'), not a recognised virus. I appreciate this can be concerning, but I have encountered similar false detections for other software installers and a bit of googling will show this is by no means a rare occurrence.

David,

Please read what Norton themselves say about WS.Reputation.1 reports . .
Norton said:
WS.Reputation.1 is a detection for files that have a low reputation score based on analyzing data from Symantec’s community of users and therefore are likely to be security risks. Detections of this type are based on Symantec’s reputation-based security technology. Because this detection is based on a reputation score, it does not represent a specific class of threat like adware or spyware, but instead applies to all threat categories.

The reputation-based system uses "the wisdom of crowds" (Symantec’s tens of millions of end users) connected to cloud-based intelligence to compute a reputation score for an application, and in the process identify malicious software in an entirely new way beyond traditional signatures and behavior-based detection techniques.

That said ( & to use Nortons own methodology for determining threats ), the wisdom of this ( broad REW user-based ) crowd is that this latest download is free from viruses.

Thank you, John and Earl for your patience and willingness to explain all things tech about Nortons way of doing things.

Couldn't get it installed on my computer. It seems that I have the latest Java version on a 64-bit Windows 10 Pro 1709.

Here's the message I get when trying to install:

Browsing to my java.exe, I get an error warning:

Any suggestion?

It installs to a different location, but you can install the version with a bundled JRE which is private to REW.
