APK - deleted by Windows Defender

Everything was working and I’ve packaged APKs many times for weeks now, but tonight I wanted to test a new build but my windows defender keeps removing it.

Detected: Trojan:Script/Wacatac.B!ml

Anyone else experience this?

It would seem that you have a virus on your computer that automatically infects your APK files as soon as they are downloaded. :confused:

Hi devkp
It’s possible that the Trojan:Script/Wacatac.B!ml detection is a false positive, but it’s important to take these types of warnings seriously.

You might want to try scanning your system with a trusted antivirus program to ensure that there aren’t any actual threats on your computer. Additionally, you can try temporarily disabling Windows Defender while you build and test your APK, but be sure to re-enable it once you’re finished to ensure that your system remains protected.

It’s always frustrating to encounter these types of issues, but with some careful troubleshooting, you should be able to get back to your APK development in no time!


Thank you for the info, but let’s try to avoid bumping 2.5 year old threads.
