Lumberyard 1.2.6 AssetProcessor.exe infected with IDP.Generic

Fresh, first time install of Lumberyard 1.2.6 on Windows 10, throws Avast antivirus quarantine for AssetProcessor.exe when launching the editor.

AssetProcessor.exe infected with IDP.Generic

Is this a false positive? I downloaded the installer from the lumberyard website download area.

I have never gotten a single antivirus alert from Lumberyard. I would say it is a false positive if you got it from the lumberyard website.

It is definitely a false positive meaning that your antivirus software couldn’t recognize the file so it categorized it as a virus when it really isn’t one. I would recommend updating the avast antivirus or the virus definition database that it is using and see if that fixes it.
