Dear Reasnow support team.

   I've been upgrading FW on my S1 for a while and never had any alerts from Windows or any antivirus software, but while trying to unpack .zip file I was alerted by Windows Defender that  ReaSnow Flash Tool V5.4.7.exe contains a malicious code (Trojan:Win32/Wacatac.DA!ml). Check attached screenshot from Windows Alert. Can you give me a feedback on this?

Regards.

I think it is a false alert. I unzipped it and checked by Kaspersky Internet Security latest updated version and found nothing. I could apply it without any issue.

This is a false positive from Windows Defender. Windows Defender and Bitdefender do not report any threat to me. My Windows Defender version is:
Antimalware client version: 4.18.2011.6
Module version: 1.1.17700.4
Antivirus version: 1.329.3059.0
Antispyware version: 1.329.3059.0
