When ext-debug.js and ext-dev.js is added as attachment in Gmail found that they are infected by virus. Tried to download the extjs lib(4.2.1) using multiple system (Windows and Mac) and attached the both files to mail. When ever they are uploaded Gmail notifies that it is infected by virus.

But it is not happening if it is uploaded from extjs-4.0.7 . Cant able to understand why this happens? Is it really infected or wrong notification by Gmail virus detector? Hope it is also not due to Heartbleed :-?;)

There's no "virus". All the source is there for you to look over if you'd like to confirm it yourself. What's really useless is it gmail gives you no information about what it found.

It's about as useful as me saying "I detected a virus in your post"!

Edit: Out of interest I installed the Avast scanner and ran it against ext-dev and it reported nothing.

Thanks for your reply. Even I had scanned the files in Norton and McAfee and found the source is clean. But why Google is reporting as infected? Due to this can't able to mail the source code.

I don't know, you'll need to ask them.
