Summary: Kasperysky is not allowing to download the Visual Studio for windows.


Platform details:

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Launch Visual Studio Code
  2. Click on "Download for Windows" button
  3. User will be redirected to : “https://code.visualstudio.com/docs/?dv=win”

After 3rd step we will be blocked by Kaspersky antivirus saying that "Visiting a dangerous website has been prevented" (see below image)

Actual dangerous web address which is getting blocked:


Any reason why Visual Studio download web address is showing as dangerous and totally blocking us from downloading it? Is it safe to bypass and download it? Or, any other known issues which I am unaware of?
