Hello drVano,

This thread looks to be a bit dated, but I hope this helps:

To submit false positives for McAfee GW edition you can use the following steps, which can be found in KB62662:

*  McAfee Gateway Anti-Malware (Secure Anti Malware) via email:

  2. Email the submission to
  3. If you believe the submission is a false detection, put "Possible False" in the subject line of the email.
  4. After received, the sample will be validated for detection issues and whether it is a known clean file, a possible false detection, or a completely unknown file. A Sample that is a possible false detection or unknown file will be escalated for review and further processing.
  5. Once a submission status is confirmed, an email update will be sent to the submitter.

Best Regards,

Jon Scholten
