False Positive: Minecraft_Server.exe

I am running Mcafee Total Protection on a desktop running Windows XP Provessional SP3.  As of this morning, Mcafee has identified the file Minecraft_Server.exe as a trojan virus and has deleted the file and blocked any attempts to redownload it.  This is a false positive and has been identified as sutch, only recently online, by other users.  Would it be possible to get any oppinons and/or fixes to this issue?  I would like to get back to being able to use this program again.  I downloaded the file from the main Minecraft site at:

http://www.minecraft.net/download

The file is linked to https://s3.amazonaws.com/MinecraftDownload/launcher/Minecraft_Server.exe

Thank you

I am having the same issue.  Several people have posted about this same problem on the Minecraft.net forums.  I tried contacting McAfee technical support, but they were about as helpful as asking my dog to defrag my computer...  Except my dog is less rude.  I definatly will not renew my subscription to McAfee.

This file is classed by McAfee as Artemis!13DB67307A3D

There is a request in the Artemis discussion section to have it unclassified : https://community.mcafee.com/message/227092#227092

This thread will be moved to the Artemis section and locked; a note will be added to the other thread pointing to this one.
