Why does the Avira engine flag the Metadefender Client as infected ?

Upon the release of MetaDefender Core v3.12.5, the MetaDefender Client self executable file generated from the management console gets flagged as infected by the Avira engine.

This is a false positive and OPSWAT is working with the vendor to fix this issue.

Currently, the MetaDefender Client that is available from portal.opswat.com, is properly signed and will not be detected as infected.

This article pertains to MetaDefender Client 3.12.5.
