I have just downloaded populous from the humble bundle through origin and Avira keeps popping up with this:

TR/Crypt.XPACK.Gen3
C:\Program Files\Electronic Arts\Populous\Game\Game\DOSBox\DOSBox.exe

It happened as soon as it finished downloading.
I'm assuming it's a mistake? But would really like someone to confirm this.

Thanks.

Hi All,

It's a false positive. Don't worry about it.

Thanks

Can I just ask what is it for if it's a false positive?

It's open-source software used by Populous:
