False Positive Virus Alert for HotS patch?

Posts: 1
Just wondering if any other Mac/Avast users have had this file come up as a virus?

I just patched my copy of Starcraft 2 up to the latest version as I haven't played in a while and after jumping in and playing for 10 mins I quit out and was greeted by an avast virus alert.

I am hoping this is a false positive, but though I would check with the community first.

This should be a false positive as that file is our HotS encrypted file. This file will install on HotS launch day.
