Current VirustTotal Verdict: Thread Generic.ml
The file MSFS_MCA_v1-7.exe, which is being detected as a false-positive, has been compiled using pyinstaller. It is a tool for Microsoft Flight Simulator which lets you control planes using your mobile device. It creates a local web server using Flask and uses SimConnect to communicate with Microsoft Flight Simulator. You can find more information on the file on my GitHub page: https://github.com/mracko/MSFS-Mobile-Companion-App
Microsoft had been identifying the file as Program:Win32/Wacapew.C!ml, but it's been already cleared from their database.
This has been changed to benign.

It's new file - I've compiled it this week on Thursday. But you can find it here:
The zip comes packed with several other files, but the one causing the false-positive report is the MSFS_MCA_v1-7.exe.
I hope this helps.
