I edited your header to include the  Artemis detection number and moved the thread to that section.

I double-checked my sources and you are correct, the latest version is flagged as a Trojan, incorrectly obviously.

Here's something you could do meanwhile I will email my contact:

I've received an acknowledgement from my contact at McAfee Labs and it is being looked at, no time window given unfortunately.

Thank you for reporting this..
