"Git LFS + Bitbucket = More Speed!" pop-up window Edited

We started getting that annoying pop-up window below, that's triggering our antivirus and our IT security team. Anyone else has this and knows what's wrong? Checkin gthe "Don't ask me again" box and clicking "No" doesn't cut it. It'll still pop up every time I run Sourcetree.

The Bitbucket LFS adapter uses a proprietory protocol to speed up LFS communicaiton between Git, and by extension SourceTree, and Bitbucket.

We'll investigate the 'Don't ask me again' option apparently not working.

Can you add any more information about the AV alerts you are getting?

Thanks Michael,

Here's our antivirus response. No idea what triggers it.

Symantec antivirus has quarantined the following file on your computer  XXX

Risk name: git-lfs-bitbucket-media-api.exe

File path: c:\users\XXX\appdata\local\atlassian\sourcetree\git_extras\git-lfs-bitbucket-media-api.exe
