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

It would be great if this could be fixed.
