Which anti-virus is that and which trojan horse or virus does it report to be contained in the executable?

Thanks for reporting, I hope it's nothing serious...

I checked the executable with ClamWin and McAfee, nothing was reported, but I know some nsis installers are considered as trojan some time, just let us know ok ?

Tried with f-prot and latest virii definitions. Nothing found.

Must be a false positive.

On the first test I don't know, it was just the default options.
I've read the man and there is no heuristic, the thing closest to it is this:

Code: Select all

 
-ai
Enable neural-network virus detection. The -ai option should not
be used with the -noheur option.
This makes me think that it's activated by default:

Code: Select all

 -noheur
Disable heuristic scanning. The -noheur  option  should  not  be
used with the -ai option.

Code: Select all

lxuser@localhost lxuser $ f-prot -ai -server -packed /home/lxuser/.nicotine/share/tmw-0.0.12-win32.exe
