Anti-Virus False Positive Alerts for Desktop 10.6

The file regESRIRegASM.dll is being incorrectly being flagged as being infected by a small number of Anti-virus products for ArcGIS Desktop 10.6.  We have already confirmed this as a false positive with the Anti-virus vendors and are waiting for them to update their signature lists.  The file is found in: C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\ArcGIS\bin

Most AV scanners do not flag the file as suspicious, which can be confirmed on the VirusTotal website here:
