Well I must say I'm pretty impressed by eSet. Here's an email reply I got about 20 minutes after I submitted the false positive:
>Thank you for bringing this issue to our attention! It was indeed a false positive of our scanner and it should disappear with virus database update 4621, which was released about half an hour ago.
>We are sorry for any inconvenience this misdetection might have caused.
>Senior Virus Researcher
>ESET spol. s r.o.
Nice -- that's a pretty fast turn-around for pushing out an updated signature set.
NOTE: There is no way to know how many other people complained before me, about not just Find and Run Robot, but on other programs that may have gotten caught in the false positive. So we don't know the *real* time it took them to respond to the problem. But still it seems like a pretty quick reaction.
HOWEVER -- this process of adding a brand new signature, and then immediately reporting to users that the antivirus program is completely certain about an infection and deleting files is totally, absolutely, inexcusably, irresponsibly, WRONG BEHAVIOR. When a new signature is added to an antivirus database, and it is a heuristic like detection of possibly harmless code -- it is imperative that antivirus companies start being honest and straightforward with users. The user must be told that this is a completely heuristic guess, based not on the detection of harmful code but on the similarity to some random signature. The user must be told that the signature is brand new to the database and that the likelyhood of a harmless false positive is very high. When we find a responsible antivirus company that does this, we will have found a new hero in the antivirus wars, one that is desperately needed.
