Trend Micro is showing that there is an embedded Trojan in Mbed Studio 0.5

I downloaded the Windows installer for Mbed studio directly from the Mbed website. When I first launched MbedStudio.exe, our Anti Virus program, Trend Micro, showed that there was an embedded Trojan:

It promptly closed the application and deleted the Mbed studio executable.

Has anyone else experienced this?

Hi, thanks for raising this. It’s the first report we’ve had of this, so are now investigating. I’ll report back here when we have some more information.
