Hi, I'd been watching this thread also. (Hoping for some confirmation of
'false positive' as I'm keen to test recent HiDPI fixes.)

I can confirm here that:

Previously 64-bit installers of ea157, ea158 and ea159 had all triggered the
virus warning in Firefox, tested across 2 separate computers. (Whilst
Windows Defender had no problem with it.)

Today Firefox (52.0 64-bit Beta) let me download
jdk-9-ea+159_windows-x64_bin.exe without complaint.
