Avast detecting NSIS 3.0b0 as false positive

Can someone that has the installer for NSIS 3.0b0 submit the installer to Avast? I can't download the installer for NSIS 3.0b0 because avast is detecting it as a false positive, otherwise I would.

I sent them a report with this problem about 3 months ago and they still did nothing. They are very irresponsible to doing their job.

Avast and TrendMicro have some very bad relation management, TrendMicro for example is listing our files for years now - always the same issue (the exe packer / copy protection we use get's flagged). Instead of fixing the signatures, they tend to white list "good" files. Quick fix if course but obviously not a solution because every new update has new checksums and get's flagged again...

Post your problem on avast forums
I had similar problems solved there.

Looks like they fixed it in their last definitions update, I was able to download the installer with no issues today. I'll update if the issue returns.
