I am using HFS 2.3m build #300. I have been using it since 2019 but recently my antivirus reported that my HFS.exe is a potential virus and removed from my computer. Would like to ask if it is a fake virus identification?

Some days ago there's also a report:

HFS is of course not a virus, since it's completely Free Software, anyone could check whether it's good or bad, rather than report blindly.

Most reason of this false positive is that, HFS is a server software and gives users "remote access", which is "sensitive" to "normal user" in their eyes.

Just put heart down :D
