    Default Windows AV false positive?

    Is anyone else getting a false positive from the built-in Windows 10 anti-virus that Anti-Beacon is infected with SettingsModifier:Win32/HostsFileHijack? Obviously because it writes to the hosts file I can see why it might think it's a virus but I've checked the file and there's nothing nefarious being added to it.

    I've been getting this for a while now and keep having to tell Windows to ignore it. I've used other virus scanners to check Anti-Beacon and it always comes up clean so I'm sure it's a false positive, but it would be nice to know if there's some way to permanently fix it.
