It's 4-10-2018 and this still shows as a virus in Symantec/Norton.

It is a "false positive" Both bitdefender and at least three others identify a common component that is benign.

A lot of the more "common" security software is simply not set up for use in a "programming" environment where people write code (simply put).

Most try to cover too broad a spectrum of threats and this type of work is put on the edge of that spectrum.
