I was able to get around this by disabling my Comodo AV but it makes me wonder what code is/are in these exes/binaries that is making the AV see them as malware? I code, so I'll be fine discussing this at the code level (specific functions, calls to the OS, etc.)


Probably because they contain mining code (should you want to mine). Also because we don't code sign with a commercial certificate from Microsoft.

  • Does the mining code match the profile or signature of a botnet virus component, one that runs a process that uses processing cycles? As for the cert, I understand that a non-commercial cert (not from a CA or Trusted Root CA) will get flagged. – ncruz Jun 24 '19 at 19:39
  • Probably. Only the AV vendor could confirm. – jtgrassie Jun 24 '19 at 19:50
