Windows 10 Defender just flagged this download of cc0d7de218cb0c260c8ba0cf6637845ad2222f49\target.installer.exe (Today's Nightly)
with trojan ID of: Trojan:Win32/Cloxer.D!cl

Defender says its 'Severe and should be removed'

Anyone else seen this of is this some false-positive of Mozilla's Installer

Yes getting that warning using both the supplied download links. I am assuming its a false positive

Are you using Windows Defender and what are your security levels set to? And are your system updates current?

Sounds like a false flag. Comodo did that at one time also a few months ago. Hasn't happened again since.
