    Artemis!FF95E58D03BE-False Positive

      I've been trying to get a game called 'Super Mario Rpg The Seven Sages' working. Everytime I try to extract the .exe file it's automatically deleted and put under quarantine as Artemis!FF95E58D03BE. When I turn Real time scanning off, the game runs fine. I've heard other reports of mcafee reporting this file as a trojan, even though it's probably a false positive. There are videos all over youtube of this game being run, so that's good enough proof for me that this file is safe. I've also used this file on another computer with a different anti virus and had no problems.

          Send the file as explained to mcafee here



          You will most likely get an immediate reply saying it is infected and an analysis ID number. reply to this email adding false+ve and name of detection into the subject and in the body of the email say why you think it is a false detection.


          Post the analysis id here and if no solution in 3 days post back and I will ping a lab tech to personally look at it.

            Okay, I sent the file through getsusp and this is what I got:


            Thank you for using the GetSusp tool and submitting your suspicious file(s). You will find detailed below, the status of each file in the submission after an initial analysis.

            I also replied saying false+ve and the name of the detection like you said, so hopefully  this will be fixed soon.

              No analysis id specified?

                Just asking, how do you get this analysis id? My email cannot send .zip files containing .exes, so I can only upload with getsusp. The email i got from getsusp had no 'analysis id' on it.


                How do I get the id?


                OR is it the WorkItem Id which is 646801.


                Thanks in advance.

                  You used the email you show in your Mcafee community profile? ( I can read it) If so that and the workitem id might work. If no reply in 2 more days post back and I will ping a tech.

                    Artemis!FF95E58D03BE has been suppressed. It may take up to 2 hours for this update to reflect in Artemis system.
