I might add that Site Advisor Flags your (1st) entry (Portable Virtualbox) as "Malicious/Dangerous", and quite possibly should be removed,for the safety of others.
All the Very Best,
As CD says send it zipped and password protected as he suggests and use subject as posible false +ve and name of detection. say why you think it so.
Post analysis id number you get here and if no definite fix in 4 days post back
I removed the file link please do not post possible infected file links even if you are sure they are ok.
I have exactly the same issue than you within the same context.
McAfee has to clean its database regarding this false positive.
If McAfee is not willing to well support the open source community including Linux, under Windows I will change my Security suite to an other brand.
Unsure if the Op actually submitted the file as Cd suggested . But that is the way to go you will get a reply back immediately so reply to that changing the subject to False +ve and name of detection and send it off.
Post the analysis id number here and if no fix in 4 days post back and I will escalate it immediately to a lab tech to fix.
Thank you for your reply.
I have tried to send several times the so called threath directly from my McAffe Internet Security (quarantine zone) but without any success (transmisson failed - an error occured when my Internet access is okay).

I will not spend any more time on this issue. I am getting rid off McAfee on my new HP Spectre 13 x2 and will use an other Security suite which is well taking care about open source softwares.
For me, this message is closing the subject.
Ok btw running getsusp would have submitted it that quarantine submission is problematic.As would the method I posted If you were in a hurry things could have been speeded up
add your email to the preferences so McAfee can notify you.
Another way that I do not like is in version 13.6 the real time scanner has an exclusion option to exclude certain files from being scanned when run.
Anyway as you removed McAfee the above is for future reader hope things go well for you.
