I'm afraid this is a false positive, i.e. there is no such thing in the package but your antivirus got confused. If you read their description
you can understand that it's, in fact, a pile of crap: they are speculatively
marking software as a potential threat. The two problems with that is that a. like all speculative malware scanners it is not accurate (as I can attest having built one in Admin Tools) and b. unlike what responsible companies do, they present their speculative results in the same way as a definitive match, intentionally misleading users.
Their "advanced" technology is so bad that it even categorizes their own Norton Power Eraser as malware
. If you search by the name of the (definitely not a ) "threat" you will find several dozen cases where innocent software is misrecognized as malware by Symantec's broken software. I mean, there's a reason John McAfee started telling people to uninstall the software bearing its name (McAfee Antivirus is owned by Symantec).
Finally, let me reassure you that the software packages are checked with two real antivirus software packages, Windows Defender on the build machine and ESET NOD32 on the test machine. I am very healthily paranoid about security to have an infected machine, let alone build software on it. I have been using computers since 1991 and had not a single machine infected, ever.
