Hi, thank you for reporting this.
We already had this problem once: the way the connection between Arduino Create Editor and the Arduino Create Plugin works can be detected by some antivirus as potentially dangerous. This is necessary for properly connection between the Editor and the Plugin and is not malicious.
But we take the issue seriously, and we would like to perform some additional steps to check on this.
Could you please provide:
- operative system version
- antivirus version
- antivirus detailed report about the file
I tried uploading latest version to virustotal as a check and this is the report: https://www.virustotal.com/#/file/508680f85465c78b4dde92aa712be1d238383f6a94f194406ef613304abacf6c/detection
As you can see only 4 out of 67 are detecting it as unsafe and no one is detecting it as a trojan.
Could you please upload it too virustotal too and share the resulting link with us?
