    Possible False Positive - Artemis!F02E53B18532

      I tried to open this file and I received this message.  Is it infected with a virus or is this a false positive?

          Virus Total lists this as various detections from other security Vendors. Depending upon the environment, it is classified as a (Pup) Potentially Unwanted Program, Trojan, and a Keylogger. On Virus Total McAfee detects  it as the same Artemis!F02E53B18532.

           

          I recommend running the latest McAfee Getsusp Tool, this way you can submit it to McAfee Global Threat Intelligence Base. Before scanning, open "Preferences" and type in your Email address. The file will then be submitted.

           

          I would then run AdwCleaner, follow directions. Then follow up by running Malwarebytes ( Free). All (3) of these programs as well as other Superb (Free) Anti-Malware tools can be found on the bottom left of this page, under "Top Liked Content"
