Re: McAfee false positive today

Yeah, seems they're all having issues. Symantec's faulse positives and their own security vulnerabilities in their own "security" suite aren't good. Kaspersky has had like 3 instances of deletion of critical windows files in the last 12 months. AVG has faired poorly as well.

I think as long as the AV vendors keep having to release updates so frequently, the potential for these things is only going to increase.

Not sure about Sophos (well, I take that back, we have just the AV on the email gateway and it had a false positive a while back) or CA.
