And all that does is remind me, once again, what a huge flaming pile of excrement that VirusTotal is. False positive. Feel free to help submit the false positive to the vendors so they can whitelist it.

Then the next version that comes out will have the same exact problem all over again.

Doesn't Virustotal just use the scanning engines from various other-party virus scanners? If so, you should blame, in this case, Mcafee and Microsoft, not Virustotal. Or maybe they have identified an actual real problem. Is that not possible?

True, but without such a handy site, we wouldn't have people so easily screaming about virus ridden files all the time. Or maybe we would, since sometimes even Microsoft's scanner needs to be told to Back The Heck Off.

A real malware would have many more detections, I expect in at least a quarter of the entries. That is why so many scanners are offered to permit a statistical assessment. In the Microsoft's case the report doesn't even claim a definite detection but states "behaves like", and could be disregarded just as if it said "generic" or "packed".

Like my foo_midi component, that has 17 detections on a tiny executable that does nothing but act as a Steinberg VST host.

Wait, so CreatePipe is now a bad operation now?
