MSE and Windows Defender Being Overaggressive

The latest updates (or some update within the last two weeks or so) to Microsoft Security Essentials and Windows Defender made them detect Drakefire Chasm as trojan. As far as I know, this is a false positive. The v1.3.2 zip has been sitting in dropbox unchanged for about 1.5 years and is quite unlikely it has suddenly become a trojan in there.

Interesting how Rogue Effect and Rings of Valor are clean according to Windows, even though they have been developed quite similarly (C++, libtcod, same compiler and machine), and shouldn't really have many differences with DfC. I guess there's just something with DfC Windows Defender doesn't like anymore.
