Windows defender detects a harmless c# program i made as a virus

  antivirus, c++, false-positive, windows

So i made a fun c# meme program about the game among us on an .exe file.

But when i share it, anyone who runs it (including myself if i download it from the places i shared it in) gets a windows defender warning (Windows protected your computer).

Here is my code :

using System;

namespace cs2
{
    class Program
    {
        static void Main(string[] args)
        {

            

            Random random = new Random();
            Console.Write("See if you are a crewmate or impostor ? 1/2: ");
            string Result = Console.ReadLine(); 

            if (Result == "1")
            {
                int tests = random.Next(0, 6);
                if (tests ==  1)
                {
                    Console.WriteLine("You are the imposter");
                    Console.ReadLine();

                }
                else
                {
                    Console.WriteLine("You are a Crewmate");
                    Console.ReadLine();
                }
            
                


            }







            



        }
    }
}

I shared the program on discord and mediafire . I used the dotnet build visual studio code command to compile it into a .exe file.

What is causing this false positive and how do i fix this problem ?

Thanks.
