Cryptominers undetected by McAfee

Please let me know if there is a better way to inquire about this. I have been doing some research on Cryptojacking and though I would test to see if some of the common cryptocurrency miners are flagged by McAfee.

Looking through coin miners from the top 50 list I found the following that did not get detected by McAfee:

Bitminter -

geth -

xmr-stak - (Public binary release was detected but recompiling the binaries manually unfortunately gets past McAfee. Since Monero is the target for Coinhive/Crypto Loot I figured this would be a good one to test recompiling the binaries but I fear all the open source miners could be recompiled to get past McAfee detection)
