@tails_icywench it would be helpful to know what antivirus scanner your using.

False positives are a thing. There have been stories of AVs deciding that parts of your OS or even themselves are malware.

It’s my understanding that’s a generic “downloader/installer code detected” warning. It’s a “heuristic” pattern match which means it doesn’t detect a specific threat, it detects code that behaves in a certain way.

Launchers include download/install code by their very nature. As Dark Lord says, without further info this is just a false positive/awareness indicator.
