Edge casey redactor.min.js false positive

I know Perch team can't offer support for Redactor but I'm asking this here in case the community have come across this issue.

While uploading a Perch (up-to-date) site with Redactor editor (up-to-date) included, via FTP, I was blocked on the file redactor.min.js as it was deemed unsafe and containing the virus PUA.Win.Tool.Packed-177. It's sister file redactor.js uploads fine. The hosting company can't help me and told me to report it to ClamAV at So I guess they are using that to virus check uploaded files. I've reported it via that link. Not sure on turnaround or response time.

Has anyone else comes across this and/or found a workaround?

Update: Redactor 1 is EOL - no longer developed so this probably won't be addressed from their side. Use Redactor 2 (also available on Perch plugins page)

Are you using Redactor or Redactor II?

When you say up-to-date do you mean the newest version from Imperavi or the one we have on our site?

The Redactor version included in the latest Perch (v2.8.34). Don't know if that's 1 or 2 to be honest :)

We don't actually include one - so you've downloaded it from either here:

Thursday mornings - yes, it's Redactor "1" from there. Missed the fact 2 was available. I will try v2 this evening and see if it get's blocked.

Redactor II "resolves" this issue.

Hopefully, ClamAV get to the bottom of the issue with v1 at some point for people who still use that.

I think v1 is effectively dead at this point, so that's probably the way forward.

I updated the post with that info.
