I bought McAfee Internet Security application to several computers about a month ago. Suddenly today McAfee software has started to detect Perseus software: PERSEUS.EXE as Artemis!7C22946406E3 (trojan) which it definitely IS NOT.
Please whitelist the file and correct your database A.S.A.P as I had to turn the real-time scanning off in my computers because of this!
Solved! Go to Solution.
To get it whitelisted you need to submit the file ie

Automated analysis was not able to determine that this file is malware. This file is
being sent for further processing and the DAT files will potentially be updated if
detection of this sample is warranted.
Ok will check in 4 days and if you haven't posted it as fixed will get it done immediately. I cannot skip the process unless a tech sees this thread and does it himself
No response from virus_research team and McAfee Internet Security still claims PERSEUS.EXE to be a trojan (Artemis!7C22946406E3).
Peacekeeper, please help if you can!
