Yes it's false positive detection. Maybe the false positive comes from the installer (inno setup). I'm trying nsis...

Yup, I'm getting the same thing. Had to double check the update notification was sending me to the legit site at first.
Based on other results for "Trojan:Win32/Detplock" it looks like a fairly common false-positive.

Here's a VirusTotal link for the installer:

3D-Tech News Around The Web / SQLite 3.31.0 released
« Last post by JeGX on January 24, 2020, 05:24:22 PM »
SQLite 3.31 has been released two days ago:

Quote
- Add support for generated columns.

- Add the sqlite3_hard_heap_limit64() interface and the corresponding PRAGMA hard_heap_limit command.

- Enhance the function_list pragma to show the number of arguments on each function, the type of function (scalar, aggregate, window), and the function property flags SQLITE_DETERMINISTIC, SQLITE_DIRECTONLY, SQLITE_INNOCUOUS, and/or SQLITE_SUBTYPE.

- Add the aggregated mode feature to the DBSTAT virtual table.

- Add the SQLITE_OPEN_NOFOLLOW option to sqlite3_open_v2() that prevents SQLite from opening symbolic links.

- Added the "#-N" array notation for JSON function path arguments.

- Added the SQLITE_DBCONFIG_TRUSTED_SCHEMA connection setting which is also controllable via the new trusted_schema pragma and at compile-time using the -DSQLITE_TRUSTED_SCHEMA compile-time option.

- Added APIs sqlite3_filename_database(), sqlite3_filename_journal(), and sqlite3_filename_wal() which are useful for specialized extensions.

- Add the sqlite3_uri_key() interface.

- Upgraded the sqlite3_uri_parameter() function so that it works with the rollback journal or WAL filename in addition to the database filename.

- Provide the ability to tag application-defined SQL functions with new properties SQLITE_INNOCUOUS or SQLITE_DIRECTONLY.

- Add new verbs to sqlite3_vtab_config() so that the xConnect method of virtual tables can declare the virtual table as SQLITE_VTAB_INNOCUOUS or SQLITE_VTAB_DIRECTONLY.

- Faster response to sqlite3_interrupt().

- Added the uuid.c extension module implementing functions for processing RFC-4122 UUIDs.

- The lookaside memory allocator is enhanced to support two separate memory pools with different sized allocations in each pool. This allows more memory allocations to be covered by lookaside while at the same time reducing the heap memory usage to 48KB per connection, down from 120KB.

- The legacy_file_format pragma is deactivated. It is now a no-op. In its place, the SQLITE_DBCONFIG_LEGACY_FILE_FORMAT option to sqlite3_db_config() is provided. The legacy_file_format pragma is deactivated because (1) it is rarely useful and (2) it is incompatible with VACUUM in schemas that have tables with both generated columns and descending indexes.

3D-Tech News Around The Web / The Ten Most Common Security Pitfalls for Startup Companies
« Last post by JeGX on January 24, 2020, 03:49:33 PM »
Most common security pitfalls by Mikko Hypponen (Chief Research Officer of F-Secure):
Quote
Today, all companies are software companies — and this definitely applies to startups, too. Practically every startup ends up writing code, even if technology isn’t the main focus of their company.

Here’s a ten-part checklist to help you and your hot new startup avoid the most common security pitfalls:

...

3. Trust the cloud.

Most startups today choose to go for cloud services such as AWS, Azure and GCE anyway, which is also good for your security. Amazon, Microsoft and Google are investing hundreds of millions of dollars into their security. This means that breaking into the servers that run the largest cloud providers is hard.

...

6. Get a Mac.

When I walk around in startup events, everybody seems to be rocking a MacBook. Macs are great for security, but probably not for the reason most people think. OS X is actually less secure than Windows 10 in many ways. However, as Mac market share hovers only around 10% and most organized cybercrime gangs have existing expertise in Windows, criminals keep focusing on Windows. This is why we see much fewer attacks on Mac. Do note that Mac users fall for phishing just as easily as Windows users — and iPhone and Android users fall even better, as there are fewer safeguards on them, and detecting a fraudulent lookalike URL is harder on a smaller screen.

« Last post by JeGX on January 24, 2020, 10:18:38 AM »
NVIDIA Nsight Graphics is a standalone application for the debugging and profiling of graphics applications. Nsight supports applications built with DirectCompute, Direct3D (11, 12, DXR), OpenGL, Vulkan (1.1, NV Vulkan Raytracing Extension), Oculus SDK, and OpenVR.

Quote
Feature Enhancements:

- Vulkan/OpenGL Interop Range Profiling
        Added support for profiling applications that make use of Vulkan and OpenGL interoperability.
        Users can select the API to profile in the Range Profiler to focus on profiling a particular API.

- Increased Performance when Running RTX Applications
        Tracking options for acceleration structure builds have been changed and a more performant default option is offered.
        Projects using the previous tracking mode will be updated to the new equivalents.
        Users are now warned when their acceleration structure build patterns interfere with the analysis and are offered
        guidance on how to improve their compatibility with Nsight Graphics.

- Added the Nsight Aftermath SDK to the Nsight Graphics package
        Nsight Aftermath is a simple library you integrate into your DirectX 12 game’s crash reporter to generate GPU "mini-
        dumps" when a TDR or exception occurs.
        For more information about Nsight Aftermath, visit https://developer.nvidia.com/nsight-aftermath.

Improvements:

- Added the ability to export the resources view resource list to CSV
- Vulkan descriptor sets view can filter descriptor sets that are not currently bound
- Applications that run in full-screen mode now receive guidance on how to best interact with Nsight Graphics live analysis
- Improved event list view expand and collapse support so that the view is collapsed by default for increased readability, but
  expanded upon search

New Support:

- Vulkan Extensions
        VK_KHR_shader_clock
        VK_KHR_shader_subgroup_extended_types
        VK_KHR_spirv_1_4

- OpenGL Extensions
        glAlphaToCoverageDitherControlNV is now supported for frame debugging and profiling
