Malware Detected While Attempting to Download Matplotlib
This post has NOT been accepted by the mailing list yet.
I am attempting to download matplotlib, however, my computer constantly shuts down the process, stating that windows defender has detected malware in the file. This has happened when downloading a .whl as well as just trying to install using pip install matplotlib. I am assuming that the file is safe and that i can bypass the windows defender, however, i would like to verify that before doing so.
Any thoughts as to why this is happening or suggestions on what would be best to do would be much appreciated.
