foo_pd_aac: Flagged as trojan by Microsoft Defender

Since this morning (CET) foo_pd_aac has been flagged as a trojan by Microsoft Defender. I guess, and hope, it is a false positive, but I thought I'd let you all know.

Looks like another lovely case of false positive. VirusTotal mainly shows the typical nonsense detections, same engines that "detect" absolutely everything as malicious. Quick check at API calls it makes shows suggests that it does nothing malicious and is just a typical helpful component. I submitted the file to Microsoft for re-evaluation.

Thanks, Case, for filing that false positive report before I even had a chance to notice this.
