Why would Mcafee is different in VT. In my opinion they can't make changes to virus guards itself. Yet again other virus guards are fine with it. I even saw on official NSIS website that they have mentioned, Mcafee detects them as a false positive
Yes I have checked the site here is the URL NSIS False Positives - NSIS you can clearly see that all other antivirus guards has listed NSIS as safe still Mcafee needs to respond
As for the installer, I did escalate that to our AV team and they found the installer a false positive and whitelisted the file. As for any other files, I was not aware of these so I could not escalate them. If you want these escalated, you can follow the same steps that I used to have the file whitelisted. These steps are outlined in the following KB.
Even if we submit the false possible report to one program that use NSIS and get it whitelisted, it is highly unlikely that we can go through the process to white list each and every program we make. Simple question is why other AVs have more sophisticated detection algorithm whilst Mcafee shows lack of interest on developers
I have checked it and it is way more complicated comparing to the other one. However I doubt that we can follow same procedure each and every time we make a program.
