That would be a problem with Windows Defender, not GMS2.

Either whitelist the directory you're exporting the game to or temporarily disable Windows Defender.

As mentioned, this isn't really anything to do with GMS. Look through microsoft documentation for more information:

Additionally you may need to talk with individual distributors like Steam, Epic, GOG and learn how they handle and or complicate the process.

Then they have to fix it the same way you did. You can't change how Windows Defender analyzes files, and therefore can't do anything about it wrongly detecting your game as a virus.
In addition to signing, you technically could contact the vendor of the software to report a false positive. Whether they will take your request seriously or not is up to them, though.
