Third party False Positive by AV on Personal Details

I've had a couple of reports that the personal details editor for XF 1.5.3 triggers Avast Security to prevent access to it.

Code:

Infection:Other:Malware-gen [Trj]
Process:C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe
I'm not actually sure how you report false positives to Advast and such, but this will affect other XF customers.

The initial report we had related to the full size version, which I confirmed just contained the expected details. Unfortunately, not a lot we can do about it. I've found a few references to false positives with this check specifically, so it seems like their heuristics are off.
