2014.4 Install - Xilinx Information Center (XIC) install reported as Trojan:Win32/Repjexi by Microsoft System Center Endpoint Protection


The Xilinx Information Center (Windows 8.1, 64 bit) reports that the 2014.4 release is available.

When I press install to download/install it, Microsoft's System Center Endpoint Protection antivirus/malware tool triggers the following alert:

Trojan:Win32/Repjexi, Alert level Severe
Category: Trojan
Description: This program is dangerous and executes commands from an attacker.
Recommended action: Remove this software immediately.

This is a false positive and has been reported to Microsoft so that they can fix their definition file.
