2013.1 Install - Symantec flags HAOPResynthWorker.exe as a virus


When installing 2013.1, my antivirus displays the message below and removes the file from my install:


Running Symantec Endpoint Protection Version 12.1.2015.2015
Scan type: Auto-Protect Scan
Event Security Risk Found!
Security risk detected: Suspicious.Cloud
File: C:\Xilinx\2013.1\bin\unwrapped\win32.o\HAOPResynthWorker.exe
Location: Deleted or access blocked
Computer: xxxxxx
User: xxxxxx
Action taken: Delete succeeded: Access denied
Date found: Friday, April 05, 2013 9:37:23 AM



Updating the Symantec definitions to the latest version no longer flags this file as suspicious.

The file which is flagged is a test file that is not used for the normal operation of the tool.

Vivado will operate normally without this file.
