Scheduled Scan with DAT 5709 has deleted some autorun.inf files
our McAfee on demand scanner has deleted several autorun.inf files on our files servers over weekend. I am pretty sure, that this has happened by accident because all of these files are stored on our server since many months and are also scanned several times before. The scanner claims to have a "Generic!atr" found in autorun.inf for example in VMWare Virtual Center 2.5 Folder. Does anyone have seen similar issues with scans when the DAT 5709 is used? Thank you very much for your responses in advance.

Ok. Thank you guys for all the replies to my thread. I also made a case at McAfee support but unfortunately without a reply yet. I will keep you informed when I got a first answer from the support team. Nevertheless, as already mentioned, I am almost sure that this was a false positive detection from the McAfee engine and also the comments from david.noble and jsuuronen underline this.
