McAfee Incorrectly Detecting ADClicker-DF Trojan in WinDeveloper Products

If you are using McAfee virus protection products please note that the detection of ADClicker-DF Trojan in WinDeveloper products is a false positive.

This problem concerns the following WinDeveloper products:

  • WinDeveloper IMF Tune
  • WinDeveloper TNEF View
  • VSS Data Export
  • .NET 3D Plot

All of these products include the same file which is incorrectly being detected as infected by this Trojan. The file concerned will be found in the product program files directory named:
uninstall.exe

We contacted McAfee who confirmed that this is a false positive and that the updated signature files will be available for download today (26th August).

Check the McAfee site for more details on ADClicker-DF

We want to thank Andy for promptly reporting the issue to us and apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused. This was beyond our control. We also want to thank McAfee for their swift response.

The following is the Email response we received from McAfee regarding this issue:
