Kaspersky is detecting Rust compiled executables as Trojans.

I am a software developer and have used KTS for years. I recently started learning Rust, when I built a simple "Hello World" program, KTS won't let it run. It keeps deleting the executable and displaying it as VHO:Trojan.Win32.Sdum.gen. Please fix this, I am using the official rustc compiler.

Add the folder or file to the exclusion list, so Kaspersky won't detect it (only if you really trust the application and know it's really safe - at your own risk)
 Add file and folders to exclusions ↓
  • Open the Kaspersky interface
  • In the lower left corner select the gear symbol (setting)
  • Click "Security Settings"
  • Scroll down and click → Exclusions and actions on object detection
  • Scroll down again and click → Manage exclusions
  • Click "Add"
  • Under "File or folder", select the file or folder to exclude from scanning
  • Under Protection components, select "All components" or a specific component you want
  • Under "Status", select → Active
  • Click → Add
  • Click → Ok
  • Click → Save
Additionally, please send the file to Kaspersky Virus Lab for analysis
To do this, do:
  • Go to the site → KasperskyThreat Intelligence Portal
  • On the bottom left-hand side of the page, click on → Sign in
  • After logging in with your My Kaspersky account click on the → File Analysis tab
  • In the "Drag & drop to upload" field click → Add File
  • Select the file you want to send for analysis
  • (optional) If you want the analysis to be hidden from other Kaspersky users, check the box → Private submission
  • To send the file, click → Analyze
  • Wait for the complete result (this may take a few minutes).
  • NOTE: The analysis tool is limited to just 1 file per day.
