Bitdefender marks MCUXpresso IDE as a virus

I am using MCUXpresso IDE v10.1 (and have also checked with v10.0) and Bitdefender Internet Security 2018 on a Windows 10 PC. As soon as I initiate a build, Bitdefender begins quarantining mcuxpressoide.exe (causing the program to exit), and proceeds to quarantine lots of associated files.

 

Has anyone else experienced this? 

 

Adding the "\nxp\mcuxpressoide_10.1.0_589" folder to the Bitdefender exclusions list does not solve the problem. I have to completely deactivate Bitdefender in order to build a project in MCUXpresso.

 

Bitdefender claims that these files contain the "Gen.Atc4.Detection" virus.
