False Positive File stopped by Mcafee antivirus

Jump to solution

Hi , Myself Sharodwato. I am a coder. I'm a customer of Mcafee antivirus , I subscribed to the Livesafe for 1 year on my PC . So my issue was that , when I opened the Visual Studio Code and run my program , the antivirus stopped the executable file and treated that as a virus , when I tried to send the file on the exclusion list . It will automatically delete the file.

Source Code

#include <stdio.h>
int pro;
float rect;

int main() {

    printf("Enter the number \n");
    scanf("%d",&pro);

    // Secound Number //
    printf("Enter the Decemile \n");
    scanf("%f",&rect);

    int act = rect*2*pro*2;
    printf("the answer is %d \n",act);


}
