Windows Defender flags Plastic as containing trojan

Recommended Posts

I just installed Plastic SCM Team Edition, Windows Defender has quarantined PlasticSCMPlugin.exe as a trojan, with alert level Severe.

It is unclear to me whether this is a false positive, or the download has been compromised.

Installer: PlasticSCM-
Win10: Version 1809, OS build 17763.504
Threat name: Trojan:Win32/Azden.A!cl

- Visit https://www.plasticscm.com/download
- Download 'Team Edition'
- Run the installer

What happened
During installation, Windows Defender issued a notification of a severe threat due to Trojan:Win32/Azden.A!cl in PlasticSCMPlugin.exe.

This is a false positive. We already reported it to Microsoft and they concluded that it's not actually malware. We will double-check it because it shouldn't be happening now.

Sorry or the inconveniences,
