Malicious warning from your browser (chrome)

This occurs only for Google Chrome web browser users:

The installer file HomeBank-x.y.z-setup.exe is sometimes reported as malicious for some obvious reason but it is not, it's a false positive.

Be reassured, you can double check by yourself. As a first step, you can check with an online security solution, like virustotal or f-secure.

Second step, if you need to be more reassured you can do a deep scan of the installer file with your antivirus after download.

If someone were to find a true positive result, then he can contact me
