When following this official guide to setup an Azure VPN Gateway, the downloaded VPN client application is reported as Win32/Detplock by windows defender.


The guide basically generates to be downloaded exe created by Microsoft.

I'm guessing this is a false positive, has anyone seen the same thing? And is there a way to know for certain?


It is a false positive. Just simply ignore the message from Windows Defender and run the client tool anyway.

  • Correct, I had the same response from windows defender. Must admit didn't get around to answering my own question. – Alex KeySmith Mar 20 '18 at 11:24
