Hi,

This is mostly intended as a heads up: I just wanted to update Visual D and downloaded the current version standalone installer. It promptly got flagged by my antivirus (Avira), seemingly based on a heuristic.

Running the file through VirusTotal results in it being flagged by 4 scanning engines. However, the behavior logs look clean.

Although I'm 90% certain that this is a misclassification, can someone please double-check that the file is indeed clean? Thanks.

Regards
Gregor

Unfortunately msbuild\pipelink.exe has been flagged as infected by a recent update to the MS Defender database, see also https://issues.dlang.org/show_bug.cgi?id=20325

Here's a digitally signed version of the file: https://gist.github.com/rainers/6cdf73b48837defb9f88/raw/72489c399e1c0e889a13e6efb1015957e65a5405/pipelink.exe that passes all but one AV program on VirusTotal.
