@dpcoops The reason for the message would be that something within the .PDF they are downloading is triggering a detection driver designed to detect markers of suspicious behavior/content within .PDFs. If you suspect that your environment may be experiencing a "False Positive" detection event, then you will need to follow the process outlined in KB85567 in order to submit the sample for analysis with McAfee Labs. They, along with Support, will be able to assist you with validating the reputation of the file and working towards the appropriate actions/resolution.
