fasm 1.71.54 recognized as malware by Windows Defender
fasm 1.71.54 recognized as malware by Windows Defender (Win10 x64). This wasn't the case for previous fasm releases.

Yet again, another dumb AV. Time to disable Windows Defender.

Yes, but it can discourage newcomers.

We have no control over Windows Defender (I assume no one on this board works with the WD sources, but I'd be pleased to be proved wrong). It is silly and never-ending to try and keep altering fasm just to appease all of the 50+ mainstream AVs out there. And besides, if you "solve" for one, then another can decide to flag it. Not too different from Sisyphus. Smile

MS Security Essentials also detects the Maltule trojan in the OpenGL example. No problem with FASM though, which is curious.

I posted a similar issue Windows 10 64Bit Defender gave me false positives; I ended up making specific exceptions for FAsm and FAsmG by download file name then directory exceptions after install with Defender. Recently I tested removing the exceptions and Defender is still playing friendly with my FAsm installations.

My statement may help IF you (anyone reading this thread) are getting false positives from Windows 10 Defender. Problem has gone away recently, but may appear again in the future --hope it doesn't though.
