I am making a magazine on Vista with scribus for the first time and I sent a pdf to a costumer. She got the Virus Alert Exploit.PDF.b.gen. I then checked with many virus scanners. The only one who found one was McAfee. But McAfee can not remove the cause of the virus, only the pdf-files, which I generate with scribus.

If I check the pdf generated with kaskpersky, it does not find anything. Is this wrong alarm of McAfee or how can get rid of the virus finally?

RE: Exploit.PDF.b.gen

If McAfee wrongly identifies something you must submit it to the Threat Center.
