Artemis false positive in Adobe DLM (Adobe Installation Manager/Updater for Firefox)

If you download the latest version of Adobe Flash for Firefox, Adobe installs a download manager called  "getPlus(R)" which is described as a "Download-, Upload- and Installation Manager". It is programmed by NOS Microsystems Ltd -  http://www.nosltd.com/

Currently one of the files in the XPI package is being detected by Artemis (np_gp.dll - Artemis!F38D47880AB4 (Trojan) )

Hopefully will be sorted out by McAfee Labs at some stage soon, but as Admin's you are possibly going to see this due to how widely installed Flash is.

Although I have flagged your feedback within McAfee, I would appreciate if you could contact McAfee technical Support to have a case logged if you have not done so already.

Many thanks

And Artemis strikes again. I'm curious which sensitivity level you were using.

The false alarm has been fixed now. The file should no longer be detected by Artemis.

Re: Artemis false positive in Adobe DLM (Adobe Installation Manager/Updater for Firefox)

Is there any possibility that VirusScan is detecting older versions of DLM that are affected by "APSB10-08 Security update released for the Adobe Download Manager"?  If so I see this as a positive service.  Manually identifying all computers with getPlus(R) and then uninstalling will take a long time, so if VirusScan takes care of these files for me, I can work on other issues.
