rstudio ide treated as malware by symantec and quarantined

I downloaded 1.3.542.zip installerless and ran it but symantec in my work quarantined as malware. Wondering what your experience of this kind and solutions are. Thanks.

When this occurs, we occasionally submit the executable and request an exclusion from the Antivirus vendor -- however, we typically only do this for official RStudio releases as it would be rather arduous to perform this task for all builds of RStudio.

I would suggest trying a different daily build, to see if you have any better luck.
