Because you can mine MoneroV with it and that is considered a malware by antivirus software. Monero has the same problem (MoneroV wallet is a clone of the Monero wallet).

Other mining software have the same issue. For example XMRig shows up also as a malware.

  • That depends on the virus scanner – Endogen May 10 '18 at 5:08
