Questionable false positive file removed

Amendment to VB's April Linux comparative review.

In Virus Bulletin's April 2007 Linux comparative review (see VB, April 2007, p.11), VB reported that ESET's product NOD32 had generated a false positive during scanning of the older part of the clean test set. After further investigation and careful consideration, VB now deems that the file alerted on was inappropriate for inclusion in the clean test set. The file will be removed from the clean test set with immediate effect. A VB100 is therefore awarded to NOD32. No other products were affected.

Should software vendors extend support for their products on Windows XP beyond the end-of-life of the operating system?
Yes - it keeps their users secure
No - it encourages users to continue to use a less secure OS
I don't know
