I am quite excited to start making my first interactive book. I found twinery.org and it looks like everything I need. I downloaded the following files from your website and ran "twine_2.2.1_win64.exe" and "twine_2.2.1_win32.exe" through virustotal.com and shockingly I got the following...

Result scan for "twine_2.2.1_win32.exe"

Bkav scanner result "HW32.Packed.B071" and WhiteArmor scanner result "Malware.HighConfidence"


Result scan for "twine_2.2.1_win64.exe"

Bkav scanner result "HW32.Packed." and Trapmine scanner result "Malicious.moderate.ml.score"

These are serious detections if they are real when Googling these results. What I am hoping for by posting my concerns is to know that the creative team of Twinery knows about these detections and they know these detections to be false positives. I am looking for peace of mind.

I suggest to report the on the Issues page of the Twine 2 application project GitHub repository, so that the application's developer will know about the issue you've had.

Also, please report the details of the detection to the vendor of the antivirus software so they can verify the results. Personally, I suspect that it's a "false positive". I use Comodo's Internet Security software, and its AV scanner found no problems in freshly downloaded copies of both of the two installers.
