I tried to install SonarLint 4.3.0 from Eclipse Marketplace on a Windows 10 (version 1803) machine. It fails because Windows Defender detects “Trojan:Win32/Emali.A!cl” in one of the downloaded JARs. The affected file is: C:\Users\myusername\AppData\Local\Temp\signatureFile879118800227653429.jar.
Due to the actions of Windows Defender Eclipse reports the following error message:
An error occurred while collecting items to be installed
session context was:(profile=D__eclipse_package_jee-latest-released_eclipse, phase=org.eclipse.equinox.internal.p2.engine.phases.Collect, operand=, action=).
Problems downloading artifact: osgi.bundle,org.sonarlint.eclipse.core,188.8.131.5232.
Exception in opening zip file: C:\Users\myusername\AppData\Local\Temp\signatureFile8769050405659550675.jar
Since this is a company computer I’m not allowed to change Windows Defender settings, but besides that, it seems very strange to me that a trojan is detected in the official SonarLint installation.
Would you please check this issue asap?
