It's not practical to code around anti-virus software, especially ones with aggressive heuristics, as it is impossible to know what they look for. This is an online game, so this can happen.
It is possible to report a False Positive to them so they can remove the detection on their end. With most of the software you use, the devs probably did that before they shipped the software, which is why you don't see these erroneous detections with popular software. I'm not sure how useful this is right now while the game is still heavily under development and only open for a few days at a time, but we can definitely keep that in mind. For now setting an exception should do the trick.
