I have Managed McAfee on my PC and it deletes PortableAppsPlatform.exe (downloaded from http://portableapps.com/download).
Since I hava Managed McAfee, I can't take any action to prevent this, so I no longer have the program on my PC.
Here is a screenshot:
Looks like a false positive to me.
Have you followed the instructions for reporting false positives and/or submiited the file to Webimmune and been provided with a sample number?
The issue should be resolved now. Kindly update to DAT 5920, Engine 5400.1158 using the Update manager and activate McAfee security. It should no longer trigger a detection for 'PortableAppsPlatform.exe'.
Thanks and Regards,
Hi, I'm running McAfee Total Protection (or Security-as-a-Service or whatever you're calling it now) and it's picking up the PortableAppsPlatform.exe file as a trojan (Artemis just as above, only with a different set of hex digits after the name).
I submitted a copy to the McAfee Labs (submission analysis ID: 6186333).
Is it possible to have it so that this file is left up to the user to decide if it's safe or not rather than just deleting it?
McAfee(R) Artemis technology provides real-time protection that secures enterprises and consumers from threats as they strike and much quicker than traditional signatures can be deployed. As Artemis is updated in real-time there is no requirement to wait for a full DAT update nor to use an EXTRA.DAT intermediate solution. Simply wait approximately 30 minutes and this false will no longer exist or trigger on your system. Depending on the network settings you have or the caching involved between your system and ours it may take slightly longer for this false alarm to be resolved.
I have the same problem. I tried sending the file to McAfee, but get an error message "This item could not be sent to McAfee due to a network problem." Restoring the file just cycles through the problem again.
Is there a place we can tell McAfee to trust this program?
