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 ( 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 7c786cf47e2164bd73e/analysis/1361746086/


It would be great if this could be fixed.
