New vulnerability in Tor Browser Bundle 2.3.25-10?
--------------------------------------------------
User cypherpunks reported issue when downloaded files are scanned by Microsoft Security Essentials or another cloud based AV product due to wrong value of "browser.download.manager.scanWhenDone;true" [1]
Cypherpunks suggests to set the value to false to prevent reporting downloaded files to Microsoft. He also mentions this can be achieved by AV settings itself.
