How to stop antivirus false positives everytime we re-release software?

983 views antivirus

Windows Defender and AVG/Avast pickup our software application as a virus/false positive everytime we release. We have a code signing certificate and add taggant as well.

Every time we release the software we have to go through the process of doing a false positive form on multiple AV vendors sites.

How can we get our company code signing cert marked as safe or avoid this time consuming false positive report process on each release?

Signing cert doesn't help most of the time, it's probably a coding pattern which is similar to a virus listed in them, best you can do is contacting the AV to whitelist you to get past through that.
