It seems Windows Defender flags the latest msi installer as a trojan, specifically Trojan:Win32/Sprisky.V!cl.

I assume this is a false positive similar to the earlier thread; could you register this as such with Microsoft?

I'm using Windows 10 64bit with all updates. Windows Defender Antivirus Definition 1.269.1192.0 (latest version)

I just manually scanned:
  • NCrunch_VS2017_3.17.0.2.msi

But didn't find any virus/trojan. Maybe Microsoft has fixed it.

Windows Defender becomes more aggressive recently, it reported 2 installers from JetBrains as trojan too.

Thanks for sharing this. I've submitted this to MS as a false positive.

With malware spiraling out of control globally, scanners are getting more and more aggressive. Managing false positives is becoming more challenging all the time..
