We have observed similar issues at work multiple times and the options were usually:

1. Try to find the offending pattern in the file, try to avoid it by compiling with different settings, modifying the source code, or if it is a text file, try to modify the content somehow.
2. Contact the antivirus vendor and request an exemption.
3. Ignore the problem and wait until users contact the antivirus vendor.

Reading the comments in https://bugreports.qt.io/browse/QTCREATORBUG-18701 which was not even evaluated I assume, the Qt Company usually chooses option 3.
