McAfee falsely detects competing AV software as a worm!


The RealTime Protector component is not a worm

Mcafee's antivirus product, using definition files number 4199 , falsely
detects the RealTime Protector component of F-Prot Antivirus as a new
worm. This problem with the Mcafee product applies to machines running
Windows NT, 2000, and XP with F-Prot Antivirus 3.12.

Needless to say the RealTime Protector component of F-Prot Antivirus is
not a worm, neither a new nor an old one. The source of this problem
lies solely with Mcafee's appearant lack of quality control.

Mcafee users encountering this false detection of the RealTime Protector
component are encouraged to ignore it and upgrade their definition files
when newer files become available from Mcafee Inc. when they have fixed
this problem. Users of Mcafee can also upgrade to F-Prot Antivirus for
Windows here to get a more secure and reliable antivirus protection.
