Is this an official source?
Downloads\dropbox-sdk.zip tried to load a suspicious source detected as Amsi.Edge.22.C2AFDFF1 and was blocked. Your device is safe.
Bitdefender returns me this message and blocks the file from downloading. I can't turn it off on my work computers. Has anyone had this problem?

Thanks! I don't see any other reports of this "Amsi.Edge.22.C2AFDFF1" internally or elsewhere online, and it may be a false positive, but I'm raising this with the team regardless.

 

By the way, it's not necessary to download the SDK source to just use the SDK in your app; if you're trying to use the SDK in your app we recommend just installing it from NuGet anyway.

The https://github.com/dropbox/dropbox-sdk-dotnet repository is the official source code repository for the Dropbox .NET SDK. You can find it linked on this www.dropbox.com page to confirm: https://www.dropbox.com/developers/documentation/dotnet

 

Can you share more information about the issue you saw? For instance, can you share the specific steps you followed that led to that message, and share any screenshots/screen recording showing that?

 

And specifically, can you let us know where/how you got the file named "dropbox-sdk.zip" specifically? When I use the "Download Zip" option in the "Code" drop-down, that gives me a file named "dropbox-sdk-dotnet-main.zip", and downloading the "Source code (zip)" asset from the latest release gives me a file named "dropbox-sdk-dotnet-6.37.0.zip".

 

Thanks!
