is the first time you try to install it , or after an upgrade?

no this is triggered after the upgrade to version 3.3.0, with previous version i was not facing that issue

can you manually allow on Antivirus the Daedalus new Version?

after the solution, you can open a Ticket on IOHK support team, so they will investigate about it.

yes actually i had to manually set mcafee to ignore deadulus folder but is kind of scary to see that there is some malware in an official deadulus wallet, thanks for the advice i will create a ticket to iohk support team.

is not a malware as it is coming from the official source of IOHK.
for that reason, i would recommend to open a ticket and help IOHK to investigate :slight_smile:

that can help of our development and future use.

Hi Pazaragoza - are your funds still as it should be, or are there any transactions taking place in your wallet?

The question is… from where did u downloaded the daedalus 3.3.0?

i downloaded from official deadulus page https://daedaluswallet.io/

Then probably u should contact IOHK support

As soon as you enter your private seed into a piece of software on your PC or worse on your phone you inevitably will have to worry that one day some bug in the software can compromise your key which then may lead to a complete loss of funds in that wallet. With a hardware wallet, you don’t have this problem because it provides a second layer of security that is not software (i.e. someone has to press buttons on your device to authorize a Tx) and no software bug can do that.

In a Ledger you have special hardware which guarantees that the private key never leaves the device
