any fix from PF side?
see below Antivirus log
its a false positive,set exceptions plz
Can always run it in an isolated VM if concerned.
I will post here what I posted for another person:
The short answer is no, it is not malware, the issue is that alot of these "great" antivirus programs look for ssimilarities ie. unsigned certificates, things that require communication to the internet and "share/communicate" data to a third party (in this case communicating with our servers AND Niantics). Since pokefarmer is designed to play against Niantic servers and for a few other reasons I will not get into, it doesn't have a signed "trusted certificate", which is causing it to fail the inspection by bit defender thus giving a false positive, some builds don't some do. It's a never ending battle to try to not get it flagged, but I assure you it is a safe program.
In this case you might need to disable Bit Defender while running PF and re-enable after. IF you are still having issues Dakos and a few others in our discord support can remote connect with you and assist you."
Subsititue Bit Defender with Kaspersky and you will be fine
