Configlet being detected as a threat by windows defender

Hi! I’ve been collaborating in the Java Exercism Track and recently when I use configlet I’m getting a message from windows defender that is detecting the execution as a threat. More info

Current version installed: 4.0.0-beta.16

Hi. I can assure you that this is a false positive - Configlet is not malware.

Unfortunately, it is a well-known and long-running issue that antivirus software too-often incorrectly flag Nim executables (like configlet) as a virus. It happens even for the main Nim installer or compiler itself. Sadly, there isn’t much that we can do about it.

Sorry that you’ve encountered this - it’s the first time I’ve heard about somebody encountering this for configlet.

Some past discussion elsewhere:

Thanks for the reply!
