Windows defender, on win10, with AV dat defs version 1.259.809.0 (dec 26 2017) flags

Phonec2.3_Installer_64bit.exe

as

Trojan:Win32/Fuerboos.C!cl


Overriding AV and allowing it to be extracted, then uploading to virustotal, it shows clean:

Based on quick research about false positives for this malware class, and the virustotal result, I believe there is no actual threat. However, it's probably worth getting ahead of as a FAQ entry.

I have submitted the file here
https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/wdsi/submission/d6d91207-f8ac-4087-a0c1-d1bba683a319 (https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/wdsi/submission/d6d91207-f8ac-4087-a0c1-d1bba683a319)

Which should eventually clear it (I'd hope).

Thanks for submitting this!

I've had this issue in the past with other plugins. Always a false positive. I will look into it asap and submit it myself to be sure it clears.

Thank you for the heads up!

Ok, just ran a scan on Windows 10 with Defender running patch 1.259.953.0, which is the latest update. All files clean and no threats were found. So hopefully the false positive issue corrected itself already. Thanks again and let me know if you still have any issues.
