Windows Defender is alerting people of a "threat detected" for "Behavior:Win32/Hive.ZY". The issue is tied to a recent listing in Microsoft's Defender update file, which is making a wrong detection. The trigger seems tied to Defender detecting "Electron-based or Chromium-based applications as malware"
