    Hello –

    New user here. I downloaded the latest nightly build of Bridgepoint here:

    https://s3.amazonaws.com/xtuml-releases/nightly-build/org.xtuml.bp.product-win32.win32.x86_64.zip

    …and ran it to look around (in prep for tutorial work).

    On closing the app, my AVAST anti-virus software (business machine) raised an IDP.Generic alert, recommending quarantine. I’ve seen this before, rarely, and assume it is a false positive here so I registered it as an exception. I’ll follow-up with the vendor.

    But I wanted to raise the point here, in case anyone else comes across this.

    The threat is usually categorized as false positive detection. This means that the antivirus program that you’ve installed has detected a legitimate or harmless file as risky and either removed or quarantined it. In any case, the detections end up leading to the removal of significant system files or data. But not every threat that is detected is a false positive.
