My Bitdefender finds lots of "threats" when launching PlayOnMac, 18 in total. Below are a few. I am guessing this is expected behavior but would appreciate any feedback or clarification on this before I whitelist PlayOnMac. Thank you and happy holidays!

Threat name: Gen:Variant.Fugrafa.69665

Last October there were 13 Antivirus Engines reporting threads.
November it raised to 22, now we have 26 engines. Here:

The reason lies probably within Wine. I suppose it's a false positive, but the situation is not good for the end-users.

Even the commercial version of Wine (CrossOver) has that issue.

Such a different kind of post I found here. It’s a mind-blowing website. Thanks. - https://www.eliteassignment.co.uk/
