False positive

As most (if not all) stuff compressed with UPX, the following program is detected as some virus while it's definitely not: http://mpam.free.fr/Apps/Files/MTTFWin.zip
I saw some other false positive reports on this forum so I thought this was the place to post it, please point me to the right direction if I'm wrong happy

RE: False positive

No one here can fix false positives but the Avert link below should help you out:

How to submit a sample to AVERT

If the file has been placed in Quarantine, you'll have to temporarily disable VirusScan and then reinstate the items and send them to Avert.

Send the file to Avert for analysis:
http://vil.nai.com/vil/submit-sample.aspx
or
https://www.webimmune.net/default.asp
or
Email file to: [EMAIL="virus_research@avertlabs.com"]virus_research@avertlabs.com
When submitting samples via E-mail all samples must be packaged in a .ZIP file. When creating this .ZIP file, it is important to understand that the .ZIP can be no more than 3 megabytes in size and can contain no more than 30 files. Additionally, any .ZIP file created must be password-protected using the password "infected" (minus the ""). Failure to follow these guidelines will cause your submission to be rejected.

Hope this helps.

RE: False positive

Thanks, that's just what I needed happy The reason why I didn't find this "How to submit a sample to AVERT" page is because I search for "false positive" and the page doesn't contain either of these words...
