BitDefender is blocking me from connecting with school VPN

In order to use my school CAD software, I need to connect with the school's VPN. Unfortunately, every time I connect, I get a disinfection warning saying that BitDefender has quarantined mshta.exe and blocked a command line from running. Now, I can tell for sure that this is a false positive because the command line being run specifically has my school named in the message.

Is there a whitelist/exceptions feature that would make it so I can connect without these issues?
