Default ioGUIExt detected as Virus by McAfee

Been using ioFTPD for ages now, and today needed a quick FTPD at work for some backup work.

Unfortunately my workplace installation of McAfee:
McAfee VirusScan Enterprise + AntiSpyware Enterprise
Version number: 8.8.0 (8.8.0.777)
Scan engine version (32-bit): 5400.1158
DAT version: 6494.0000
DAT Created on: 10/9/2011

Detected ioGUIExt as a virus when I unpacked the zip file - both for 7.7.2 and 7.7.3:

Detected as "Generic.dx!sty
Detection Type: Trojan.
Status: Deleted

This ofc. gives me an error when starting the FTPD, but otherwise it runs just fine - but without the GUI... (Which is a bit annoying).

I have attached the alert I got.

Hope you can resolve this with McAfee... as I am sure you are not handing out Trojans to your users

send the file to McAfee and tell them its a false positive, they should check it and update the virus definitions on the next update

You have to take "Generic xyz" type detections with a grain of salt. 10-1 they don't like something in the REALLY old (remember this is a 2004 VB6 app) stuff with shared memory and/or the .ocx dll's. I remember another app engine flagged the same code a few years ago with a generic thing and a later virus definition solved that issue so Carpo's suggestion is a good one.

Been trying... but unfortunately its a pain to get registered there...

I did mail everything to helpdesk (or whatever they call it) and they mailed back it was a technical issue, could I please go <url> and register.

Registration required a salt key that I got out of my IT department and registered, but I could not log in with the information I provided...

I will try again one of these days... but right now I got too many balls floating around.

Did you try to add the problem file to the list of excluded file for your AV? Won't help anyone else, but might work for you.
