Hey @Aruna , welcome to the Community!

Build 229 of Sourcetree for Mac was picked up as a false positive in several antivirus/antimalware scanners. We've got a separate thread here going through some of these. Many vendors have fixed their definitions at this point.

We scan all our builds with Symantec Cloud Workload Protection for Storage before they're allowed to be published for download. Build 229 came back clear, but some products did trigger against it. I can confirm it was a false positive.

Cheers and thanks for using Sourcetree,
Daniel | Atlassian Support
