Re: [Mingw-users] Fwd: Heur.AdvML.B comes up when I build an exe file




Eli - I did indeed send a copy of the file to Norton with a suitable 
note. However I can see from searches that over the years this very same 
virus has arisen form others compiling to exe files, and these folk have 
raised a false positive with Norton. Nothing however seems to improve. 
So I was hoping to understand why this is happening to me. Thanks for 
getting back to me, Stephen
