Default virus detected in updaters

As of today, Mcafee virus detector detected a backdoor virus in all three of the last update.exe files I had laying around in my FlashFxp dir. McAfee kindly deleted them automatically. Lucky thing they were only updaters. But just thought I'd let you know that as of today McAfee is reporting a virus in your updaters.

We use Inno Setup for our installer and on the Inno Setup newsgroup alot of people are noticing the same thing with their installers. Mcafee has been contacted and supposedly it'll be fixed in the next virus update.. guess we'll have to wait and see.

I don't know if it's Inno or Mcafee's problem ... but i think that AV vendors should improve their heuristic engines, too many false positives out there :/

Is this ever going to be corrected, I am unable to even install FlashFXp because I can not disable my Corp AV.

It looks like an update has already been released by McAfee
