We analysed the file and found that this detection was triggered on Kill.exe being in the package. McAfee(R) Artemis technology provides real-time protection that secures enterprises and consumers from threats as they strike and much quicker than traditional signatures can be deployed. In future please submit your samples in password-protected zipped file (password=infected) to

Many thanks. I have scanned with 6122 and am happy to report "all clear". I note your instructions for submitting suspicious items in future.

@lennellie: Did you read Anand's post above (see text of it at bottom of this post).  Just update your DAT file to 6122.  In English, just go to the update section in McAfee (for me, I just go to the Notification Area of my Desktop and right click on the McAfee program and then select "Check for Updates").  When you update the McAfee anti-virus software, you update the DAT file.  Then run a new virus scan and the Artemis warning should be gone.

Anand's post:


We are not detecting the file anymore as Artemis!EC40C6BFF1E6. Please update to the latest DAT 6122 in case you are not running the latest DATs.
