digitalmars.D.learn - Panda Antivirus puts the latest dmd installer in quarantine

But no problem with any file stored inside the current .7z 
archive file.

So I guess the problem comes from the installer executable itself.

Please try to fix this as soon as possible, as this immediately 
drives people away from D before they even got a chance to 
install it...

Why is it put in quarantine? Posting the reason and some information about it would help a lot to identify the issue. Not everyone has "Panda Antivirus" installed and nobody working on dmd should be expected to anyway. It's possible that the issue could be their AV too in which case contacting Panda Antivirus might be helpful too. I know in the past there has been problems with Avast.

If I remember well, it has detected a "W32/exploit.gen". The file was put in quarantine in the second I tried to execute the installer. Here is the current VirusTotal analysis : https://www.virustotal.com/fr/file/d12e9521ab0ad6a9c0babadeb789692b625fa3535ff406f27a7f47a096430a99/analysis/ The following malware signatures were detected a few hours ago : Baidu Win32.Trojan.WisdomEyes.16070401.9500.9674 20170706 CAT-QuickHeal Trojan.Generic 20170706 Comodo Heur.Packed.Unknown 20170706 TrendMicro-HouseCall Suspicious_GEN.F47V0606 20170706 To be sure, I've just submitted the file for a new analysis, from a file downloaded on my linux system. The Comodo detection has disappeared, but the others remain : Baidu Win32.Trojan.WisdomEyes.16070401.9500.9674 20170706 CAT-QuickHeal Trojan.Generic 20170706 TrendMicro-HouseCall Suspicious_GEN.F47V0606 20170706
