Email template

A sample email template for reporting false positives by email.

Subject: False Positive Submission

Body:
Dear {AntivirusVendor} Support Team,

I write this email to report a false positive concerning the following software:
{Filename}, {Hash}

The Bitcoin Core Client is falsely detected as malicious.
It does NOT contain a malicious behavior.

It is not possible to mine with this software, since the mining code was removed with the v.0.13.0 a couple years ago:
- https://bitcoin.stackexchange.com/questions/49664/since-which-version-the-mining-functionality-removed-from-wallet
- https://bitcoin.org/en/release/v0.13.0#removal-of-internal-miner

Can you please remove this false positive?

Best regards
{Name}
