Installing Pyinstaller, windows antivirus detecs Wacatac.B!ml?


I was installing pyinstaller today to compile some python code, and when I hit compile, windows detected Wacatac.B!ml. This is news to me, since I am normally a linux user, but dual booted into windows to compile the code. On the github for pyinstaller, one of the authors is saying that it’s an error and just a false positive ([https://github.com/pyinstaller/pyinstaller/issues/5854](https://github.com/pyinstaller/pyinstaller/issues/5854)). However, on other websites, it is talking about how it is genuinely malware and you should remove it. I’ve already removed it, but I’m wondering if I should continue with the pyinstaller or stop using it. Thanks.
