    False positive: Suspicious.J!89  for any program compiled with MinGW (McAfee-GW-Edition)


      This applies to McAfee-GW-Edition.


      Any software which is compiled with MinGW (www.mingw.org) triggers a "Heuristic.LooksLike.Win32.Suspicious.J!89" detection.


      It is triggered with any source code compiled with MinGW (at least latest version).


      For example this C code compiled with MinGW:


      #include <stdio.h>

      int main() {


        return 0;



      triggers "Heuristic.LooksLike.Win32.Suspicious.J!89", as can be seen here on virustotal.com:

      It would be great if this could be fixed.
