Antivirus issue

From time to time an antivirus program may detect the timote server as a malware.

Timote server is obviously not a malware but its behavior may seems strange to an antivirus program and it may trigger an alarm in its heuristic engine because Timote:

  • Uses the libspotify provided by Spotify which is protected by a packer called Themida (packers are usually encountered in malwares)
  • Takes control of the Spotify application

You can perform an analysis on virustotal to make sure Timote server is not a malware :-)
