Zotero JAR file causing Windows Defender to raise eyebrows

We've starting getting this when installing Zotero:

It's entirely possible we're not installing the very latest version in our install scripts so later...
  • Yes, we were installing 5.0.89 and the prompt doesn't appear in 5.0.92. That was an easy fix.

    The version isn't really relevant here. That file is just a ZIP of the Zotero JavaScript code, there was nothing wrong with 5.0.89, and there's nothing we can do if some security software decides to flag it. If that happens, you as a user of that software should just report it as a false positive.

    (There were also no other reports of this, so this wasn't a general problem.)
