Could you please make a report of this on the mantis, I'm guessing it's an issue with the scanner but it might require the devs to contact Bit Defender to be solved

I also get a false positive with Bitdefender Total Security 2014. Several other anti-virus programs detect it as malicious too: https://www.virustotal.com/en/file/673905ebbaa458764166e91187edda2254ae0e3044fef0a8e83657172d169334/analysis/1411060992/

it depends at how you configure your antivirus generally,
with avira for example, on default settings it will mark files as malicious if you alter a few bytes in the file that are not even used at all...

MSE also flags prisonarchitect.exe when I try to run it.

i just noticed it's the steam version,
that binary is obfuscated by steam, so it might be due to that.

it might be best to contact valve about this, seeing as it's their protection scheme...
