Installation - McAfee reports virus in wget.exe while installing Migration SDK A

Installation - McAfee reports virus in wget.exe while installing Migration SDK A

Problem:

Installed Micro Focus Revolve 7.0 WebSync 2

Installed Micro Focus Resolve 7.0 WrapPack 4

Installed Migration Software Development Kit (MSDK) AddPack 1.0.007

Got McAfee On-Access Scan Messages:

VirusScan Alert! A file has been detected on your PC as either malware or a potentially unwanted program.  An attempt has been made to clean the file(s), if it is cleanable.  It was also moved to the Quarantine folder where it will remain for 45 days.

Name: C:\Program Files\Micro Focus\Migration Software Development Kit\ELTH\qabin\Windows\wget.exe

Detecteed As: Tool-Get

State: Deleted

Message repeated for

Name: C:\Program Files\Micro Focus\Migration Software Development Kit\ELTH\qabin\Windows_NT\wget.exe

Has this broken the Revolve MARS Installation?  Is this file needed?

Resolution:

ELTH includes parts of the Cygwin Unix-on-Windows toolset in order to run shell scripts (the "qabin") in Windows.  ELTH doesn't require wget so it can be removed.  The Cygwin docs indicate that wget is used to keep Cygwin up-to-date.  Maybe McAfee thinks that's virus-like.
