My Antivirus tells me that Comskip/Showanalyzer has a Virus - False Positives

Folks, please note there have been some reports of some Malware and Antivirus software giving false positives on various different types of “heuristic” worms/viruses against Showanalyzer.

NOTE that these are all FALSE positives. MCEBuddy and all bundled software has been tested with Norton, AVG, McAfee and Symantec and they are CLEAN.

One possible reason for this “heuristic” false positive is that the antivirus when analyzing the software/code mistake the highly advanced commercial detection algorithms for malware algorithms and mistaken mark them as malware. Again this is a false positive. The software is clean.
