TeamViewer Note.App reported as a threat

A scan by F-Secure on my new MacBook Pro reports a file within the TeamViewer app as a threat. The path/filename is so long that the Filename field cannot be expanded sufficiently to see the actual file that is being reported.


I suspect that this is not actually a risk to my machine but any advice would be much appreciated.

    Hello St0ker,


    We are aware of this issue and we're working on this. The detected files mostly in our cases are a False Positive and has been marked as clean in our database.


    Do you still happen to see the detection now? If yes, please provide us a screenshot of the detection name for us to check further.

    False positive is still present! File is named "libswiftDispatch.dylib".


    @St0kerIf you click on the detected file name with 'two fingers on your touchpad' you can choose "show in Finder".

    Many Thanks for the replies.


    I ran a scan this morning and the issue seems to be cleared.


    If this happens in the future I will know how to see the full filename and send it for analysis.
