Hi. In the last few days, Bitdefender has been detecting and issue and then cleaning. The message is:

The file C:\ProgramData\BOINC\projects\asteroidsathome.net_boinc\period_search_10214_windows_x86_64__sse2_win10.exe is infected with Gen:Variant.Ser.Lazy.5404 and was moved to quarantine. It is recommended that you run a System Scan to make sure your system is clean.


I'm assuming it's a false positive, but best to check first!

Thanks, Gary

11/72 AV suites flag it as potentially suspicious, but BitDefender is known for high false positives.

Boinc apps are CPU-intensive (on purpose) which could be one reason why they can look suspicious. If you want to be 100% sure, try reporting it https://www.bitdefender.com/consumer/support/answer/29358/

Bitdefender no longer detects it as malicious software, so I guess, they've fixed it. Note that our binary is still the same :)
