We might want to put a warning out there so people don't freak out:

snowflake-client.exe is seen as a virus on Windows:


Hopefully it's just a false positive? Anyone else experiencing this? 
Didn't have time to check it happened on my work computer where I was 
remotely connected and Tor Browser updated itself. Given it was a 
self-auto-update I could not have possibly downloaded a "wrong" infected 
Tor so no panic.
