Avira finds "Adware/Agent.54633" in SUMo 4.5.1.326 (lite)

Avira AV is finding "Adware/Agent.54633" in SUMo 4.5.1.326 (lite) and auto-quarantining the file.
Don't know if it might be a false positive or not, but something the author might want to double-check.
Side note: SUMo continues on it's several years long path of mis-identifying the version numbering of Avira AV.
Currently installed version 15.0.20.59, while SUMo wrongly says that version 15.0.20.55 is installed.
Conclusion: SUMo is "looking" at the wrong file to get the version number.

To be reported as a false positive to Avira.

What's the wrong file at which SUMo looks at, and which one would be the good one ?

Re: Avira versioning
"avcenter.exe" is what SUMo thinks is the correct file to look at for the version number.
Either: "avscan.exe" or "avshadow.exe" would probably be a better option.

SUMo 4.5.1.333 [correction: SUMo version 5.0.1.333] is still consulting the file "avcenter.exe" for the version number.
Either: "avscan.exe" or "avshadow.exe" would probably be a better option.
In comparison: the free program "IObit Uninstaller"

identifies Avira AV's correct program version number.

Please update to v5.0.1
This bug is planned for a later 5.0.x version.

Update: latest SUMo v. 5.0.11.347 still has the ongoing problem of mis-identifying the Avira AV version number.
Currently, for example, SUMo detects the installed product version of Avira AV as being: 15.0.24.143, while the Avira AV program's control panel self-identiies the installed version as being: 15.0.24.146. As stated before in this thread: SUMo needs to "look at" a different file in order to "figure out" which is correct.
Thereby avoiding display of false information as to whether or not an updated version of Avira AV is actually, in fact, available.
