Artemis detection : CNET download installer

This has been noted by Brian Krebs - see http://krebsonsecurity.com/2011/12/download-com-bundling-toolbars-trojans/

CNET is bundling possibly unwanted toolbars with its downloads.

McAfee does not flag the installer as malware when it is part of a software download, although 3 other AV products do; but when it is unpacked and scanned separately McAfee reports it as Artemis!72832717589A. It is classed as adware or a Trojan by 8 other products.

I'm not sure whether this counts as a false detection or not.
