    I recently grabbed the latest version of the now AVG Anti-malware and found that Sophos is detecting it as malware.

    Virus 'Troj/Zlob-VU' has been detected in "S:\Software\Utils\_Security\Ewido\avgas-setup-". Cleanup unavailable.

    Someone might want to either check the distro and/or contact Sophos to get any false positives cleaned up.

    Yesterday Sophos also detected ccleaner setup file as having the same trojan, and later in the day released an updated IDE file to correct this false positive.
    Apparently it's to do with the installer. Recently 2 other apps had the same problem with sophos.
