My first post here, so please excuse my ignorance.
I updated Qt (a complex programmer IDE) and Webroot claims that qmake.exe contains W32.Rogue.gen .
I use this software for years.
What should I do, to assure, the findings are correct?

Hello Henry, Welcome to the Webroot Community Forum.:D
 
I looks like the software that has been updated needs to be Whitelisted by Webroot.

Thank you Henry for posting on what Support did to help you out. Good to hear 😉
Update.
The Support Service has qmake.exe whitelisted, and suggested those are (there a many instances of qmake.exe within Qt) save to use.   ❤
 
 
Hello Dave (ProTruckDriver)!
Thank you. Glad to be here.
Webroot saved my comp, more than once. And using the "Support Ticket" prompted a very fast response, wow just wow.
Now, they will investigate the log files, and I will post the results.
