    False positive detection

    neelakurdinger

      I have come across the thread that clearly explains the programs that use nsis installer, are being detected as a possible threat. Link to the thread is below,

       

      Re: False Positive BehavesLike.Win32.Dropper.nh NON-SENSE by McAfee-GW-Edition

       

      Since you say that the empty installer should be suspicious, I'd like to say that I downloaded nsis installer myself which is located in the following link http://sourceforge.net/projects/nsis/files/NSIS%203%20Pre-release/3.0b1/nsis-3.0 b1-setup.exe/download?use_mirror=switch&…

      Even this was detected as a possible threat. you can see the virustotal analysis.

      i really hope we can find a solution to this because I do run a lot of programs that are in nsis and mcafee blows me with alerts all the time.
