Question

doctl v1.87.0 for windows is detected as a malware by windows security

Today I attempted to update the doctl in my pc from 1.85.0 to 1.87.0 via scoop. The update process was broken on the package extraction step because the content of the package was detected as Trojan:Script/Wacatac.B!ml

The scoop installer is a third-party tool for installing software. Official doctl downloads are available on GitHub:

https://github.com/digitalocean/doctl/releases

We provide checksums that can be used to validate the downloads.

Looking at the error message, 01506e9987faf47ab52ff028005955818a58c1c696d7b2387f5ef76129ed4fec is the correct checksum for the official doctl-1.87.0-windows-amd64.zip release.
