Windows defender flags Lenovo download as a threat

2019-08-11, 13:19 PM

 I attempted to download the Lenovo tool to find the serial number.  Windows defender popped up and said that this program was attempting to download a very serious security problem. VirTool:MSIL/Injector.  It said thatthis tool is used to create viruses, worms, or other malware. I have uploaded a snip from the Windows threat screen.

 

Have other's had the same problem ?

Hello,

 

My initial thought is that it is a false positive alarm.  Have you contacted Microsoft to see if this is a known issue?
