of course it's a false positive because only one antivirus detect this, not others ! (and not a virus just a malware)

Seems that there is something being flagged by a number of AV Vendors, in my case Symantec, McAfee, Falcon Sandbox also.

Can you address this and provide an explaination on the issue if this is a false positive?

why do you want to believe only those who report malware and not those who say it's clean ?
If you don't trust don't download, there are hundreds of downloads per day without any hassle :wink:
and you can use the portable/zip version...

The reports are also from sandbox processing, not just from a simple virus scan and this can be caused by a number of things, not specifically intended functionality of the product itself.
Currently I'm believing this is a false positive, if that's the case it would be good to investigate and correct whatever is causing these flags to fire. If it's an unnecessary use of privliged functions, that would be good to fix as it could be leveraged by other parties or applications as an exploit of sorts.

I've been a user of the product for many years and have purchased a license. Should this be submitted as a support request from a paid license user instead of a request on the BBS?

Since the first setup version (v6) some antiviruses have detected false positives, suddenly it's bitdefender, another time it's norton or avast ... since these are commercial applications, they have every interest in that and I will not go into this game there. After that, it's a matter of trust. If in doubt there is the zip version :wink:
