This is great news.  Despite some of the annoyances we've had with McAfee, I'm impressed that they resolved this issue so quickly.  This is a process that often takes months!

Good news. Unfortunately it required that I had to removed the file they claimed was infected but really wasn't. Still working on finding a way to have it on the site without McAfee thinking it's actually a threat.

Hmm, was the file hosted on your own server or was it hosted remotely?  I never took a look at the file in question, so I don't even know what it was.  If it's on your server, perhaps re-adding it wouldn't throw up a red flag the second time around; they could have scanned it with an old database.  Just a thought.

File was hosted on Computer hope server and was a simple CD-ROM driver for older systems. I and many other forum members ran it through various scans and all came up empty. McAfee wanted me to send file to them to have it checked, I did, but nothing has been done with it. Link of ongoing discussion.

Well, we're just going to have to wait and see what happens next, I suppose.  Ex_Brit has definitely been a big help here; I'm sure he'll continue to back us up in this matter.  If it doesn't work out, then we'll just have to find some sort of alternative.  We've got a lot of resourceful people here who can surely come up with plenty of ideas.

Nathan...

Happy to see you in the green, my friend...even if you had to remove the file.

Let's see what McAfee decides with the file in question...and maybe have it put back where it belongs.

Nathan must have added the file again. I can only imagine how frustrating it can be. >:(

Wait, my Firefox addon tells me the site is yellow. But when I click on "Site details", it tells me the site is green. ???

I think McAfee would want to do a bit of updating on all their systems.
