As pointed out by plgarcia it is pretty natural to have more than one dot. The very normal way if a malware checker detects false positives is to teach the malware checker, and not to change the falsely detected software - what an idea!
I fully agree with you. However, if we want people starting to use FC at their work (which is my personal aim for personal reasons
), we must take care in this respect. For example I have no clue what even the name of the anti-malware is, nor how it is working and how to teach it. So at my local SSD there is no problem, but as soon as I push a XXX.YYY.FCBak file to a network drive, I get strange security warnings, just because of its name.
Yes, I can turn-off the backup feature, but I am a developer and know what is going on and why. New users who want to give FC a try don't know. So maybe I am now annoyingly over-eager
I was a developer of the FOSS program www.lyx.org
for more than 10 years and there we faced the same problems. If you want to be accepted as program in companies you must take care of annoying over-eager anti-malware programs. Once you are accepted, like e.g. LibreOffice, Inkscape etc. the IT guys won't discuss with you and set up the whitelist quickly on demand or already by default.
